Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

HCCC is an excellent school. This campus is the main campus, so it's the largest. Classes are in separate buildings. I took Calculus 1 and Calculus 2 in the math building (about 2 blocks away from the main building). I went to a 4-year college and only took classes here over the summer to transfer credits and save money. Security is great, you must have a HCCC ID to enter any building. The professors here are superb as well. Specifically, my Calculus professor is a great educator!

Best Culinary school in the nation! Wonderful faculty, staff, teachers and environment. I couldn't be more happy with the degree I obtained through HCCC. I would advise anyone interested in culinary to really take advantage of that school, it completely changed my life and I found my forever home there!

I just spoke with Felicia Allen in admissions. Wonderful person! Very helpful, informative and insightful. She graciously took the time to explain and answer all my questions in great detail. What a doll she was. A true asset to the college and our community.

Watch out if you are placed in basic classes like English and Math or both. You guys better pass them. Note. basic classes are leveled so English has 0 1 2 3 then college 101prep meaning with lab. Math Has 2 basic math and basic algebra. Meaning is not a college course and Will not be doing anything with your major until you pass it. If you don’t get out of basic courses you are wasting your time and money. By the way basic course get expired. My math class got expired after 2 years. If you have a learning disability make sure there service work for you. Tutoring in this school for me at the North Hudson one hour is not enough and a few times the lady was a no show or was late so 1 hour wasted . Make sure financial aid is paying for your classes and go ask in person and ask when. Keep an eye on your schedule before you register make sure payments are payed and always make sure you have financial money to cover it because if not they will get dropped at the last minute. They will not tell you. follow up with ur school emails. Oh and most importantly financial aid has a maximum credit limit of 30 credits covering basic classes. If you go over the limit you will have to pay for it.
