HCTC Online

Hazard Community and Technical College has been offering online education for 20 years. HCTC has developed four online learning options: Online, Hybrid, Flex, and Live Classroom. We take pride in our online education platform and we are always looking for ways to improve. While online education isn’t for everyone, many students who cannot attend classes on campus due to scheduling conflicts, childcare, work or other commitments find that HCTC Online options make quality higher education highly accessible, affordable, and flexible. HCTC Online courses require a computer with Internet access. In addition, online learning requires a certain amount of computer savvy. Learners should know basic word processing, how to send and receive e-mail, and how to upload attachments. HCTC Online classes require communication with faculty and other students via e-mail or discussion groups, taking online tests or proctored tests, and submitting various assignments. HCTC faculty are available to support you in any online learning option you choose. Classes follows a weekly/daily schedule of assignments and due dates and the mode of delivery vary by program. Not all options are available in all programs.
