At Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC), students know that they are getting an edge when it comes to life and job skills. HCTC’s philosophy is centered on learning success, and their diverse program offerings reflect this. From academic programs like Bluegrass and Traditional Music to Criminal Justice to Welding Technology, HCTC covers a wide range of popular and unique associate degree courses that define it.

HCTC is the result of a 1964 petition by the people of Hazard and Perry counties to set up a community college in the southeastern region of Kentucky. Inaugurated in 1968, the college moved to its current 17-acre campus two years later. At the time, it was still called Hazard Community College. Merging with the Hazard Technical College through the mandates of the Kentucky Postsecondary Education Improvement Act of 1997, it became HCTC and joined the Kentucky Community and Technical College System that same year.

The current President and CEO of HCTC is Dr. Steve Greiner. Under his leadership, the two-year college offers Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees that can be transferred to any Kentucky four-year college. As a unique offering, HCTC has collaborated with the University Center of the Mountains to allow students to complete either a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree without switching locations.

HCTC offers many programs such as online learning for distance education students, and workforce solutions for local companies. It is affordable and provides a friendly environment that fosters success at work and within the community.
