History of the College

Hutchinson Community College, a fully accredited, public comprehensive college, offers four degrees in Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of General Studies, 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 – 172 freshmen, 15 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), Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), 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 four off-campus locations: McPherson, Newton, Fort Riley, 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 E. Kansas Avenue in McPherson, Kansas, opened in 2010. The Fort Riley location at 8044 Normandy Drive at Fort Riley Army Base near Junction City, KS, offers Allied Health courses and Practical Nursing; it opened in 2014. HutchCC Cosmetology, located at 200 E. 3rd Avenue in Hutchinson, Kansas, opened in 2016.

Career Description

Each of the following careers involves providing care for other people in a specialized manner. Each career is concerned with attaining and maintaining quality of life for those in need, with a majority of those individuals being the elderly population.

Certified Nurse Aide (CNA)

CNAs provide personal care for primarily the elderly in a long term care or hospital setting. They assist individuals with dressing, ambulation, feeding, bathing, toileting, perineal and oral care, range of motion exercises and restorative care. This is an entry-level position in nursing and is required before many of the other careers can be entered.

Certified Medication Aide (CMA)

This career involves the passing of medications, performing treatments, written documentation, and in some situations and/or facilities, may perform resident care. The certification of CNA must be obtained prior to being able to perform as a CMA.

Home Health Aide (HHA)

Individuals with this certification provide personal care of primarily elderly persons in their home. They assist individuals with dressing, ambulation, bathing, toileting, perineal and oral care, range of motion exercises and restorative care. Additional responsibilities may include housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, shopping and other services as specified by the care plan. There are two levels of instruction for HHAs. The HHA may take an extended course certifying them to be only an HHA. The more traditional method includes becoming a CNA and then taking an abbreviated course to attain HHA certification.

Certified Medication Update (CMA Update)

The State of Kansas requires training every two years to keep the CMA certificate active. Individuals taking the course pass medications, perform treatments, document, and in some situations and/or facilities, may perform resident care.

Rehabilitation Aide (Rehab Aide)

Rehab Aides assist residents with rehabilitation and range of motion exercises under the supervision of Registered Physical Therapists and/or licensed nurses. A number of long-term care facilities are requesting that their CNAs have this certification.

Activity Directors/Social Service Designees (AD/SSD)

The State of Kansas has a curriculum for each of these career positions. However, at HCC, these careers have been placed together since there is a large amount of duplication in the curriculum for both designees.

Activity Director are responsible for the scheduling and presentation of a variety of activities including: baking, crafts, games, exercises, outings, gardening, etc., for residents of long term care facilities, hospitals, assisted living facilities. etc.

Social Service Designee interview residents about their personal history, interests and needs. They also access outside resources where applicable. They are responsible for providing for counseling for individuals, groups and/or families. Both of these career positions must be able to implement a plan of care to improve or restore Activities of Daily Living (ADL).

Medical Records Designee (MRD)

This career position is responsible for maintaining the accuracy and completeness of medical records in the long term care setting. It is important for these individuals to know the residents and understand the importance of their position to those residents as well as to the facility by which they are employed.

Phlebotomist

These individuals are responsible for the performance of venipunctures, capillary punctures, skin stick, arterial punctures, handling of blood, handling of test tubes, use of a centrifuge, wearing gloves, possibly wearing masks and gowns, dealing with a broad spectrum of the population, handling difficult, confused, resistant, or very young patients, and at times may work in an emergency setting or work with other professionals in an emergency code setting.

Employment Opportunities

Employment opportunities for these careers are substantial in the long term care industry. CNAs or CMAs are needed in long term care facilities, and may work in hospitals and in assisted living facilities. Rehabilitation Aides, ADs/SSDs. Medical Records Designees and Phlebotomists are all needed in long term care facilities. In addition, ADs, and Phlebotomists may also work in hospitals. HHAs, may work in the assisted living environment as well as in home settings.

Job Outlook

Although the job outlook for any career varies from time to time, the demand for health-related careers remains relatively high. Each career is listed with its current level of demand.

The demand is high for CNAs and CMAs due in part because th CNA provides the foundation for many of the other levels listed. CMAs are important to the long term care industry due to the shortage of licensed nurses to perform this function.

Demand for the HHA is moderate. Employment fluctuates for home health aides due to changes in the law related to home care as well as Medicare and health insurance reimbursement.

Moderate demand exists for AD/SSDs. The AD career is in greater demand than the SSD career but both are necessities in the long term care environment.

The demand for Rehab Aides is moderate to high.

Demand for the Medical Records Designee is moderate. Smaller long term care facilities utilize MRDs in their day-to-day operations.

The demand is moderate for Phlebotomists. They may be employed in long term care facilities, hospitals, clinics or laboratories.

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.  

Students who are participating solely in clock-hour programs will receive the designation of "W" during the withdrawal period only if they have not completed any of the program's specific courses in that term. Grades will be recorded for completed courses.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress

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 complete 70% 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 the 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 he or she is 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 70% of the cumulative credit hours attempted.  A student failing to complete 70% of his or her attempted hours will be placed on warning (see back of this form for details) for the following semester for which the student is enrolled.  A student who does not meet satisfactory academic progress standard during his or her warning semester will be placed on denial at the end of that semester.  A student may appeal his or her denial.  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 developmental courses are included in the calculation of attempted and earned hours. 

Any grades that are not posted at the time of SAP review will be considered as hours attempted, but not earned.

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

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 warning for the following semester for which he or she is enrolled.  A student who does not meet satisfactory academic progress standard during his or her warning semester will be placed on denial at the end of that semester.  A student may appeal his or her denial.  Instructions for appeal are found below.

Maximum Time Frame

Federal regulations require that a student complete his or her degree or certificate in a reasonable time frame not to exceed 150% of the published program length.  All credit hours attempted at HCC and transfer credit hours posted to the HCC transcript are counted towards the maximum time frame regardless of whether or not the credit hours apply to the degree or certificate the student is currently pursuing or if aid was received for those credit hours.  A student will be placed on warning at the end of the semester that he or she reaches or exceeds 125% of his or her published program length.  If the student does not complete his or her degree or certificate during the warning semester, he or she will be placed on denial.  A student may appeal his or her denial.  Instructions for appeal are found below.

Example:  A student is pursuing an Associate’s degree which requires 64 credit hours for graduation.  The student will be placed on warning at 80 attempted credit hours (64x125%=80).  The student will then be placed on denial at the end of the warning semester.

Transfer Hours

All transfer hours accepted by HCC and posted to the student’s HCC transcript are included when determining Satisfactory Academic Progress status for transfer students.  All official transcripts from other colleges must be received, evaluated, and posted to the student’s HCC transcript before any financial aid will be awarded to a transfer student at HCC.  The transcript will then be evaluated for Satisfactory Academic Progress before any awards are made.  Each student will be notified of his or her SAP status at that time.  If HCC becomes aware of any coursework not accounted for after an award is made, the award may be canceled until SAP status can be determined.

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, he or she will be placed on warning for the following semester for which he or she is enrolled.  Warning status will not prevent the student from receiving financial aid.  This is not the same as being on academic probation with the College.  If the student fails to meet satisfactory academic progress standards after subsequent semester on warning, the student will be placed on financial aid denial.

Denial

A student not meeting satisfactory progress for two consecutive semesters will be denied financial aid until he or she reaches the required completion rate or grade point average to meet satisfactory academic progress policy requirements. Students on denial are not eligible for financial aid of any kind, including Federal Direct student loans.  This is not the same as being on academic dismissal with the College.

Reinstatement

A student who has been placed on financial aid warning or denial may have his or her status adjusted if a subsequent semester brings them into compliance with Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.

Appeal

A student on denial may also appeal to have his or her eligibility reinstated through the Financial Aid Office.  Appeal forms are available at www.hutchcc.edu.  Appeals will be accepted through September 30 for the fall term, February 28 for the spring term, and July 15 for the summer term.  The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to review appeals after the deadline dates, if warranted.  Appeals will be reviewed within 10 business days of the date he or she were received in 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 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.  Students filing an appeal must be enrolled in the semester, in which they are appealing aid.  The student will be notified in writing of the decision within ten days of the appeal review. 

When an appeal has been denied, The student may file a second appeal if he or she can provide additional information or documentation that was not included in the initial appeal.
