Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be distributed until all funding has been allocated. Explore these unique and timely options today by visiting

HCC is also supporting students in their educational journey with several options for obtaining computers and internet access.

Discounts are available on the purchase of computers from leading manufacturers. The college also offers free use of software from leading companies such as Microsoft and Adobe. Wi-Fi is available at all HCC campuses and outdoor venues, including college parking lots. Trained professionals are just a phone call away to provide technical support for students.
