COVID-19 INFO AT HCC

Published on Nov 19, 2020

Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in our service area, Henderson Community College will move to virtual/remote learning for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester! Beginning on Monday, 11/23/2020, all of our previously scheduled in-person and hybrid classes will move to the virtual format.  Students will receive specific guidance from their instructors via their KCTCS email/Blackboard on how to proceed. 

Student support services (such as financial aid, advising, admissions/records) will be available during regularly scheduled hours in the virtual format. In-person student support services will be available by appointment.  

Students can access the most up-to-date information by visiting: https://henderson.kctcs.edu/healthy-at-hcc/
