Compare This School


Forming part of the greater Heald College network which fans out across the Western US, Heald College-Hayward was originally established in 1967. The school is private and not-for-profit, offering two-year or less degree programs in a variety of subject areas falling within the business-career path. The local community is part of the broader Bay Area in California, situated on the mainland shore of San Francisco Bay slightly to the south of the latitude from which San Francisco lies.


The various schools forming the Heald College family all are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Recently, the school was bought in its entirety by Corinthian Colleges, Inc., which will surely spur the development of further online learning opportunities at Heald College in the near future, among other benefits.

HC-H has four principal areas of study, within which a variety of concentrations are available up to the level of receiving an associate degree. These four departments are: Healthcare, Business, Legal, and Technology. Within these fields, students may end up participating in such programs as Medical Insurance Billing and Coding, Sales and Marketing, Criminal Justice, or Network Systems Administration, among other possibilities.

The faculty is entirely dedicated to helping students get the most out of their academic/educational experience and the school goes to great lengths to open up doors for students. During a student’s time at the school, there are special study options involving internships at local businesses that have proven very effective and very popular among students and among the surrounding community as well. Further support for students’ academic experience is forthcoming in the form of the Learning Center, through remedial instruction, tutoring, and study skills assistance. Career counseling and employment/placement services make sure that as students approach the end of their programs, they have a strong future to look forward to.

Recently, a state of the art medical lab was inaugurated on campus, boosting the school’s academic reputation in this particular field of study. The already existing dental lab is another outstanding facility that enhances the learning experience.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Heald College in general, and its Hayward facility in particular, do not make the habit of releasing very detailed information about the admissions process to the general public, rather allowing students to find out on an individual basis. However, there are some things that we do know: essentially, the admissions process consists of an interview with an admissions advisor, completing the application form, taking the entrance placement exam, and paying the corresponding fee (set at $250 for international applicants, and not applicable otherwise). The interview with the academic advisor is incredibly important in the admissions procedure, as it is this person’s recommendation which will likely ultimately determine your eligibility for attending the school.

Financial Aid

A large amount of students receive financial aid assistance of one kind or another. A wide variety of federal, state and local opportunities are to be had, and as with most schools the general form to fill out is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Whether through a Pell Grant, a Stafford Loan, a Work Study program, or just a local scholarship students generally find the means to pay for their educational costs.

The student body is admirably diverse and rich in constitution. Among the school’s student population, of particular noteworthiness is the incredibly high proportion of full-time students at the school, which is in excess of 90% during most academic terms. Women outnumber men significantly at the school, representing a little over two-thirds of the population of students. In terms of ethnic diversity, as is common for the greater Bay Area, the college is incredibly mixed, with Caucasians actually constituting one of the smaller minorities, with other ethnicities achieving a fairly balanced distribution with Hispanics constituting the largest minority. Virtually all the student body is made up of in-state residents.

Students are able to enjoy rather advanced facilities and installations: the campus itself comprises a 58,000 square-foot facility with various modern installations. All classrooms and offices are linked up with a modern fiber-optics communications system hooking all PCs up to the school database and network. A total of 17 servers and 780 individual school computers mean that students will be able to enjoy a truly advanced communications technology experience here.
