Why study at HFC this summer? You can get ahead as a guest student!

  • HFC’s low tuition rates give you huge long-term savings.
  • Work around your summer plans with online and on-campus course options.
  • Our classes are the same as what you would take at your regular university. Your HFC credits will fully transfer to your university, and will count toward your general education or academic major requirements. (Note: All HFC credits transfer. Please verify with your Registrar that your credits will transfer to your specific major program.)
  • Consider a Visiting Year at HFC rather than taking time off from your university studies.
  • Reduce your course load at your regular university, or reduce the time it will take you to complete your bachelor’s degree.
