HCTC Online Programs

Hazard Community and Technical College has been offering online education for 20 years. HCTC has developed three online learning options: Online, Hybrid and the NEW HCTC Flex. We take pride in our online education platform and we are always looking for ways to improve. In 2020 we were ranked 8th in the nation for online community colleges by College Consensus.
