Hutchinson Community 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.
