Find Your Program
We offer a variety of programs, certificates, and classes to meet the needs of all students. We want to make your educational experience valuable and built around your personal, educational, and career goals.
HFC highly recommends working with an Academic Advisor, who is here to help guide you into the right program for your academic and career goals.
HFC offers certificates that allow you to pursue an occupational-focused program with fewer required credits. Many certificates may be applied to an Associate Degree. See Gainful Employment Disclosures for information job outlook for specific occupational offerings, our completion rates, and financial costs associated with completion of these certificates.
HFC offers academic programs to prepare you for specific career fields, or to upgrade your skills if you are already employed. Credits you earn at HFC will transfer to four-year colleges and universities for a seamless path toward a bachelor's degree. See all Catalog Programs.

Graduation and Next Steps
Graduation is a primary goal for most of our students, and we want to make sure you achieve that goal! We are continuously developing new services to expand your pathways to success, both at HFC and beyond.
Plan your path from Day One! Student Planning provides a robust course planning feature that allows you to build a course sequence for your academic program, to chart the quickest path to graduation. View your degree completion process, plan your academic courses, and register for classes.
Once you have met the graduation requirements for your academic program, you will need to submit an application to receive your bachelor's degree, associate degree, or certificate. Our commencement ceremonies take place once per year in the spring, and recognize all graduates from the previous year.
