Registration

HCC offers courses in liberal arts and sciences, technical, career associate degree and certificate programs, and courses leading to transfer, employment, and lifelong learning. View the schedule here and choose “Housatonic Community College”.

Accelerated Options

Looking to finish your degree/certificate sooner? Winter session courses are a great way to catch up or get ahead on credits. In addition the college offers 8-week courses vs. the traditional 16 week semester. With 8-week courses you can complete a fulltime course load at a part-time pace. For example, students can take two classes per 8 weeks, which equates to 4 classes per traditional 16 week semester. View the accelerated schedules here.

Meet with a Faculty Advisor for academic course planning

Students should meet with their faculty advisor to ensure they are on the right track. If you are unsure who your faculty advisor is log into mycommnet and visit ‘DegreeWorks’ , your faculty advisor's name will be in the upper right-hand corner. Need help? Visit the Advising and Student Success office in LH L112.
