Highland Community College began as Highland University in 1858, making it the first college in Kansas. After eight name changes, the College is now in its 157th year of providing higher education opportunities to the people of Northeast Kansas in a small rural setting. The College has traditionally prepared students to continue their studies at baccalaureate institutions. In July of 2008, the region’s technical college merged with the College, allowing HCC to expand its educational services to the nine county service area in Northeast Kansas.
HCC offers associate's degrees that can transfer to a four-year institution, as well as technical certificates and health care licensure. Complete one class, transferable general education courses, or a degree program with HCC Online.
