Highland Community College
Start Here. Go Anywhere.
We Welcome You!
We welcome you to take a stroll around our beautiful campus, enjoy the sounds of our community choirs and musical groups, listen to a guest lecturer, watch an athletic event and, perhaps, enroll in a class or two. Witness first hand some of the many wonderful things happening at Highland Community College. Highland – an institution of exceptional quality – is an expansive resource for northwest Illinois.
As a community college, our mission is built around meeting the needs of our greater northwest Illinois community through quality educational and cultural programs. We are proud to have served thousands of students at our campus in Freeport, at satellite locations throughout the district, and through online learning opportunities.
In addition to offering 70 degrees and certificates, Highland is a beacon of cultural opportunity. Our theatre, arts, music, literature and lecture series are popular throughout the area. And our Cougars have a strong record of athletic success. We are committed to your academic success and to providing you with excellent instruction, a safe environment in which to learn, a diverse group of clubs and activities, and comprehensive student support services.
