Located in South Central Kansas, you will find the Hutchinson Community College. A public community college and vocational prep school, HCC offers certificate programs leading to jobs in many fields, including technical, agricultural, and medical fields, and associate degree programs for students wishing to continue education at four-year schools following graduation. Although community schools have traditionally served students within their areas in brick and mortar classrooms, Hutchinson now offers on-line classes for students whose proximity or work schedules require more progressive means of attending classes.

In an effort to foster development of well-rounded individuals, Hutchinson offers more than just academics. Clubs and activities afford students opportunities to pursue personal, professional, and social interests as well as community service projects. Hutchinson believes in keeping students engaged: in classes, studies, campus-sponsored sports and activities, or hanging out with friends.

In a time of skyrocketing educational costs, HCC has managed to keep its tuition rates low. Even so, students with financial concerns may apply for financial aid, which is awarded on the basis of need. So if you seek a quality education at an affordable price, be sure to check out Hutchinson Community College. It’s a smart choice for discerning students.
