History of the College

Hutchinson Community College, a fully accredited, public comprehensive college, offers five degrees in Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of General Studies, Associate of Fine Arts, and Associate of Applied Science. HutchCC has an open admissions policy and is governed locally by an elected Board of Trustees.

In spring 1928, Hutchinson voters approved the establishment of a two-year co-educational college called the Hutchinson Junior College. The College held its first classes that fall. Enrollment was 187 students – 177 freshmen, 10 sophomores. Classes were held on the second and third floors of a newly constructed addition to Hutchinson High School at Seventh and Walnut. In February 1938, the Board of Education acquired land on Plum Street and built Lockman Hall.

On July 1, 1965, the College name was changed to Hutchinson Community Junior College and governance was transferred to an elected Board of Trustees. The name was changed again in 1980 to Hutchinson Community College. On July 1, 1993, HutchCC merged with the local vocational school and was renamed Hutchinson Community College and Area Vocational School.  The “and Area Vocational School” was removed from the name in 2012.

Additions to HutchCC include an athletic field, stadium, tennis courts, maintenance and warehouse buildings, a student union with two additions, two residence halls, a library, science building, fine arts building, and an athletic complex. The John F. Kennedy Library was completed in 1966 and the Kopke Science Hall was completed in fall 1967.  Elland and Kent Halls, residence halls for men and women, were also opened in 1967.

In April 1970, the College acquired 425 acres of land and buildings from the Hutchinson Air National Guard. They are used primarily for agricultural, emergency medical science, building construction, and technical education courses. This location is called South Campus.

A wing was added to Lockman Hall in 1975. The College acquired Davis Hall (Ninth and Walnut) from Hutchinson Hospital Corporation in 1980. It is used for allied health curricula, Radio Kansas (HutchCC's public radio station), The Volunteer Center, Kansas Small Mine Safety and Occupational Safety.

Stringer Fine Arts Center was opened January 1989.  A major addition to the Parker Student Union was completed in 1996In 1999 the College built Shears Technology Center to house vocational programs and technical labs. On April 27, 2003, after major renovation, the library was renamed the Rimmer Learning Resource Center, after John Rimmer, chairman of HUBCO and major contributor to the College.

In fall 2006, a renovated Gowans Stadium reopened for use. The stadium hosts a variety of high school, college, regional and national events.  In 2008, the Reno County Industrial Center was renovated and expanded. The new facility was reopened in fall and as the Ade-Wifco RCIC to recognize the contributions of Fred Ade and the Wifco Corporation.

The science hall was revamped into a modern scientific facility and was renamed the Richard E. Smith Science Center to recognized the major contributions of local entrepreneur and alumnus Richard Smith in 2010.

In September 2013 the College dedicated the Bob and Lou Peel Allied Health Center at Ninth and Main to house five Allied Health programs — Physical Therapy Assistant, Respiratory Therapy, Health Information Management, Surgical Technology, and Pharmacy Technology.

On April 26, 2015 the new Fire Science Training Center was dedicated.  This project was completed in conjunction with the City of Hutchinson Fire Department. The College also utilizes the Hutchinson Sports Arena, providing maintenance of the building in exchange for its use.

The College has multiple off-campus locations: McPherson, Newton, Fire Science, Allied Health (Davis Hall and Peel Center) and Cosmetology. The Newton location is housed in the Axtell Educational Center at 203 East Broadway Street in Newton, Kansas and opened in 2008.  The McPherson location, at 2208 Plaza East Place in McPherson, Kansas, opened in 2010. HutchCC Cosmetology, located at 200 E. 3rd Avenue in Hutchinson, Kansas, opened in 2016.

The Jack Mull family Football Complex, renovated in the spring of 2015, houses the coaches’ offices, meeting space, locker rooms, and the Bob and Lou Peel Weight Training Center.

Thanks to the support of the City of Hutchinson and the voters of Hutchinson, the Hutchinson Sports Arena underwent a $29 million renovation project that was completed in the spring of 2017.  The project included the addition of three new practice gyms, a new weight training and sports medicine facility and renovated locker rooms and office for the athletic department.

Financial Aid

Eligibility for Federal Financial Aid is determined for students who annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA).  Award packages are determined as early as March of each calendar year for the upcoming academic year for early applicants. Awarding continues as Financial Aid applications are processed. A student is eligible only for those Federal programs that have funds available at the time your file is fully processed and the student meets eligibility guidelines. To be considered for Federal Aid, you must meet basic financial aid requirements:

  • Be enrolled at HutchCC in a degree-seeking major and meet Enrollment Requirements.
  • Make satisfactory academic progress as started in HutchCC policy.
  • Complete and meet FAFSA eligibility.

Hutchinson Community College complies with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, and will not impose any penalty upon eligible students if they are unable to meet their financial obligations due to delayed payment of benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Scholarships

HutchCC offers a variety of scholarships that is as diverse as our student body. Whether you are a full-time or part-time student, seeking vocational training or looking to transfer to a university, we have a scholarship for which you may qualify. Scholarships are gifts and do not have to be repaid. Most are given to eligible students with no strings attached. Some may require the student to maintain a certain level of academic success.

This policy is for credit hour courses and covers all course delivery methods.

Students receiving federal financial aid who withdraw completely from Hutchinson Community College may be required to repay a portion of the federal financial aid they have received. Questions about repayment of federal aid should be directed to the HutchCC Financial Aid Office.

Students required to report for active military duty during a semester of enrollment are entitled to a full refund of tuition and fees- contingent upon presentation of official military orders. Students who volunteer for military service during a semester of enrollment are not eligible for military refunds and instead are subject to the institution's regular refund policy.

Exceptions to the refund policy may be authorized by the Vice President of Student Services. All appeals must be in writing; however appeals will not be considered after the last scheduled day of the course or semester. Written appeals may be sent to the following addresses:

Vice President of Student Services

Withdrawals

Complete Withdrawal from the Institution
Registered students, who are within the published withdrawal date, who wish to withdraw completely from the institution, should log in to DragonZone, navigate to their course schedule, and click the Withdrawal button for all courses listed. Students are officially withdrawn and receive the designation of "W" immediately. Refunds to students who complete this transaction will be awarded according to the refund policy as listed in the catalog.

Emergency Withdrawal
After the withdrawal period has ended, requests for emergency withdrawal must be submitted in writing by the student making the request to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. The request will be reviewed, and the decision will be returned to the student within 30 calendar days.

Course Withdrawal
The withdrawal process becomes effective immediately after the period allowed for schedule changes.  Registered students wishing to withdraw from a course must do so on or prior to the date that corresponds to 80 percent completion of the course. The withdraw date is published on the schedule. Students who complete this transaction will receive the designation of "W" for the course. To complete the withdrawal procedure, students will log in to Dragon Zone, navigate to their course schedule, locate the course they wish to withdraw from, and click the Withdraw button. Students are officially withdrawn immediately.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY

The U.S. Department of Education requires that colleges monitor the academic progress of federal financial aid recipients to ensure that only those students demonstrating satisfactory academic progress towards the completion of their educational programs continue to receive financial aid. Hutchinson Community College’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy monitors student progress in three areas:  completion rate, GPA, and maximum time frame. Students receiving any federal financial aid including Pell Grants, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Work Study, Direct Loans, and/or any other federal or state aid must meet the following standards:

  • Students must earn credit for 67% of the cumulative hours they attempt
  • Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA
  • Students must complete their program of study within a reasonable time frame not to exceed 150% of their published program length

Each requirement is discussed in greater detail below.

Satisfactory academic progress is measured at the end of each semester and the student will be notified if they are not in compliance with the policy at that time. 

COMPLETION RATE

Cumulative completion rate is calculated by dividing the number of cumulative credit hours earned by the number of cumulative credit hours attempted.  Students must earn 67% of the cumulative credit hours attempted.  A student failing to complete 67% of their attempted hours will be placed on financial aid warning for the following semester for which the student is enrolled.  A student who does not meet satisfactory academic progress standards during their warning semester will be placed on financial aid suspension at the end of that semester.  A student may appeal their financial aid suspension.  Instructions for appeal are found below.

Attempted hours include any course the student remained enrolled in past the refund period.  Earned hours include any hours for which the student earned an A, B, C, D, P, or CR.  Failures, withdrawals, audits, and incompletes are considered as attempted hours, but not earned hours.    Failing grades in pass/fail courses are considered attempted, but not earned.  Repeated and remedial courses are included in the calculation of attempted and earned hours. 

A student must contact the Financial Aid Office to resolve any discrepancies related to classes with grades posting after the review period.

CUMULATIVE GPA

A student must also maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA).  A student failing to meet the cumulative GPA standard will be placed on financial aid warning for the following semester of enrollment.  A student who does not meet satisfactory academic progress standards during their warning semester will be placed on financial aid suspension at the end of that semester.  A student may appeal their financial aid suspension.  Instructions for appeal are found below.

MAXIMUM TIME FRAME

Federal regulations require that a student complete their degree or certificate in a reasonable time frame not to exceed 150% of the published program length.  All program-applicable credit hours attempted at HutchCC and program-applicable transfer credit hours posted to the HutchCC transcript are counted towards the maximum time frame regardless of whether or not aid was received for those credit hours.  A student will be placed on financial aid suspension as soon as it is determined that they cannot complete their stated degree or certificate within the 150% maximum time frame.  A student may appeal their financial aid suspension.  Instructions for appeal are found below.

Transfer Hours

All program-applicable transfer hours accepted by HutchCC and posted to the student’s HutchCC transcript are included when determining Satisfactory Academic Progress status of transfer students.  Transfer hours will be evaluated for SAP at the next evaluation period after which they were received.  Students will be notified of their SAP status at that time. 

Financial Aid Warning

At the conclusion of each semester, all students receiving Title IV aid will be evaluated to determine whether or not they are maintaining satisfactory academic progress (SAP). If a student is failing to meet SAP standards, they will be placed on financial aid warning for the following semester for which they are enrolled.  Warning status will not prevent the student from receiving financial aid.  If the student fails to meet SAP standards while on financial aid warning, the student will be placed on financial aid suspension.

Financial Aid Suspension

A student not meeting SAP standards for two consecutive semesters will be suspended from receiving any federal financial aid until they reach the required completion rate or grade point average to meet SAP policy requirements. Students on financial aid suspension are not eligible for financial aid of any kind, including Federal Direct student loans. 

Reinstatement

A student who has been placed on financial aid warning or suspension may request that their status be adjusted if a subsequent semester brings them into compliance with SAP policy.  Students may request a re-evaluation of their SAP status in writing to the Financial Aid Office.

Appeal

A student on financial aid suspension may also appeal to have their eligibility reinstated.  Appeal forms are assigned to students who are placed on financial aid suspension in the student aid portal.  Paper appeals are available upon request.  Appeals will be accepted through November 1 for the fall term, April 1 for the spring term, and July 1 for the summer term.  The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to review appeals after the deadline dates, if warranted.  Complete appeals will be reviewed within 10 business days of the date they were received by the Financial Aid Office.

The Financial Aid Office will consider each petition individually.  Only extenuating circumstances will be considered for appeal.  Extenuating circumstances must be unexpected circumstances that are beyond the student’s control.  Typical adjustments to college life such as underestimating the time required for studying, failing to manage one’s time wisely, or failing to attend class on a regular basis without documented hardship will not be considered as extenuating circumstances.  Extenuating circumstances must be adequately documented and the documentation must be included with the appeal.  Documentation may include supporting statements from doctors, teachers, counselors, etc.  The student will be notified of the decision within ten days of the appeal review. 

A student whose appeal has been denied who wishes to appeal the decision further may file another appeal if they can provide additional information or documentation that was not included in their initial appeal.

An apprenticeship program is an employer-driven model that combines on-the-job learning with related technical instruction that increases an apprentice's skill level and wages. This program helps employers successfully recruit, train and retain a highly skilled workforce and allows individuals to advance their skills while earning a living wage. During an apprenticeship, students work with seasoned mentors, and the program is designed to also help them learn skills such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving, responsibility and leadership. The electrical apprenticeship program prepares students for certification as electricians. Students will first make application to the Topeka Electrical JATC (IBEW Local 226) Union for admission into the apprenticeship. The apprenticeship training is based out of the Topeka location.

Our Police Science - Law Enforcement Certificate (CERT) program is designed to allow students to build up to the Associate of Applied Science degree. Students will complete all but the 12 law enforcement academy credit hours. Once the student completes the required number of credit hours (52), they will receive the Police Science Certificate from Hutch CC. They then can gain employment with a law enforcement agency, graduate from a state recognized law enforcement training academy, transfer that training back to Hutch CC, which is equivalent to 12 credit hours (at no additional cost). These 12 credit hours are added to the 52 credit hours earned in the Police Science certificate program, which allows the student to meet the 64 credit hours required to obtain their Associate of Applied Science degree. This certificate / degree program allows students the ability to earn a 2 year college degree and then enter into the work force and can be completed completely online.
