Due to the COVID-19 Virus and in cooperation with local and state health agencies, HCI College has made temporary changes to the mode of delivery of many of its classes. Many of the classes that were originally scheduled to be taught on campus are now being taught online until governing officials allow classes to resume on campus. The online classes are temporarily approved by the Florida Department of Education (Commission for Independent Education), the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Profession, the Florida Board of Nursing, and the United States Department of Education.
