Dear Neighbors,

Houston Community College is ready to provide the best in academic and workforce training for students starting or continuing their education. HCC continues to adapt to meet the needs of our students in a rapidly changing society, from improving building infrastructure to expanding our program offerings. We strive to be the very best in education and workforce development.

As we progress out of the COVID-19 pandemic, I hope you will recognize that HCC is increasing its community presence. Whether it is hosting Town Halls, attending community fairs, or engaging with high school students, you will see HCC connecting with residents within the community. Houston Community College is here to serve the needs of all, and we welcome the input of the community.

Expanded workforce training, community learning classes for personal development and lifelong learning for those over 55 years of age are critically important in my community. HCC has dozens of workforce programs that help students jump-start their careers, no matter their age. Classes are offered for both credit and noncredit. Our Level 1 Certificates help students improve their credentials after just a single semester.

Enrollment is always open!
