Housatonic Community college is an ideal school for individuals who have lower incomes and/or are minorities. It is located in downtown Bridgeport in close proximity to buses, train station and ferry. HCC has transfer partnerships with four year colleges located in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and others.

Housatonic Community college is not a dorm college. The College is for everyday people who want a secondary education. People who attend this school, work jobs, have children, or are students who live in the surrounding area. Many HCC Students transfer to 4 year colleges because of the affordability of HCC- This is a perfect starting off point.
The School offers an excellent education with excellent professors and teachers.
Great for these types of students
An affordable option whether Your considering a 2 year degree, or interested in a transfer program. It is an affordable option if You are worrying about paying off student loans.
