Henderson Community College (HCC) was established in 1960 as the Northwest Center of University of Kentucky. Four years later, it was christened HCC and, today, it serves the Henderson, Webster and Union communities by enrolling in excess of 2200 students in various technical, academic and transfer courses. HCC gained membership to the KCTCS in 1998.

HCC’s mission is to provide a doorway to baccalaureate programs and enriching careers through cutting-edge educational programs that equip students to handle the realities of careers and higher education. In addition to associate degree, diploma and certificate programs, HCC operates an international studies program that affords students the opportunity of low-cost summer courses and semester programs in four continents through the Kentucky Institute for International Studies.

HCC also operates a robust distance learning program for students who prefer online studies. In addition, they offer a full suite of workforce solutions that help companies to have their employees trained and certified in several skill areas such as Project Management, Lean Manufacturing and Leadership.

This two-year college positions itself as an affordable resource for high-quality education irrespective of whether the ultimate goal is a better career, better job performance or higher education. At HCC, student life is more than reading, writing and research: every enrolled student has the opportunity to engage in cultural and social activities through the several student organizations and activities currently operational on and off campus.

HCC empowers students to achieve success, but its true edge lies in its ability to impart values such as respect for other cultures, accountability, integrity and innovation.
