Student Counseling Services

Sometimes, it's just about knowing you're not alone.

It helps to know there is a safe place and person to speak with about your college experience. We want your time spent at HCC to be one of connection, enjoyment and success. We're here to help you reach your potential in college and beyond.

Whatever you're experiencing, we encourage you to schedule a time to meet and speak with us in person.
