Horrible excuse for a college

Apr 01 2014Undecided
Horrible excuse for a college. You stand in line for two hours or more and they tell you to look on the website. Most teachers don't seen to care, and half don't speak English. Some teachers don't even teach, so if you can't teach yourself you're screwed. If you have the chance go to any other school other than this pathetic excuse of one.

HCC has wonderful teachers that make extra effort

Jan 17 2014Nursing
HCC has wonderful teachers that make extra effort to accommodate students. However the advisors aren't knowledgeable, the financial aid department is a joke, and both have made multiple mistakes on my accounts, program advising, losing my transcripts. They don't have it together and are the farthest thing from helpful. I actually talked to an advisor from a local university I want to transfer to and they at least have me a clear course of action now in regards to taking the appropriate classes specific to my degree.

Financial Aid can be the determining factor in

Jun 23 2014Criminal
Financial Aid can be the determining factor in whether a young person gets the opportunity to succeed or is faced with a life of struggling. Even when financial aid is already awarded, the HCC personnel are inept at properly applying the money to pay for tuition & books. They are QUICK to drop students from classes but SLOW or NON RECEPTIVE to correcting their mistakes, add to this that teachers are not sensitive to allowing students back in, and the child is left with a huge balance, no transcripts, and possibly no future. Horrendous way of running a college.
