Health and Safety Guidelines for Visiting Campus

  • Access to campus remains restricted to authorized employees and students who have appointments, labs, or classes.

  • Before coming to campus, fill out the COVID-19 Health Screening Form. You must complete this form every day you are coming to campus, and it must be completed on the same day of your visit.

  • Students are to enter through these entrances to be screened by security. Staff should be prepared to show their ID, but may use any building entrance. Once students go through the checkpoint, they will get a wristband to wear to indicate that they were screened for the day. Employees should have their ID on display.

  • All students, faculty, and staff on campus must wear face coverings. Since face coverings are required in public by state guidelines, it is expected that members of the college community will have their own face coverings.

  • Social distance with a minimum of six-feet separation.
  • Practice good hygiene, including frequent hand washing.
  • Observe all posted signage on campus, including restrictions on seating and occupancy limits in restrooms and elevators.
  • If you are sick with Covid-19, please follow these protocols

Learning Types

  • Registration for summer begins on March 30, and for fall on April 23. The schedule is available for viewing online and in Student Planning. To start the application and enrollment process, visit the admissions page.  Explore class offerings, and find out how you can keep learning at HCC.
  • Classes are offered in a blended learning environment, with three different formats for classes: 
  • Hybrid Learning

    Learn both in person and online. These are courses that have been approved for some amount of face-to-face instruction on campus. When on campus, all students and employees must wear face coverings at all times. 

    For Winter/Spring

    There will continue to be a limited number of hybrid courses that offer some amount of face-to-face instruction on campus, but the college is expanding its offerings to encourage labs and other hands-on opportunities for students. In the schedule of classes, hybrid courses have a C designator (i.e., DHYG-111-C301) and the location is being listed as Main Campus.

  • Scheduled Remote
    Meet at designated times in an online classroom. These courses will meet in real time, and at the times listed in the class schedule. Courses will be listed as Scheduled Zoom, Scheduled Blackboard, or Scheduled Canvas in the class schedule.
  • Flexible Online Learning
    Study on your own time. These courses may or may not use Zoom, and recorded lectures are posted for students to watch on their own time. These courses still have due dates. Courses are listed in the schedule as Online. 
  • Flexible Online vs. Scheduled Remote
    Consult this infographic for more information on the differences between Flexible Online and Scheduled RemoteInfographic showing the differences between Flexible Online and Scheduled Remote Learning. Flexible Online means you log into class when it works for you, you communicate with your professor and classmates on your schedule, and you complete your work with greater independence and self-direction. For Scheduled Remote, you log into your course on a specific day and time, interact with your professor and classmates in real time, and get immediate feedback in live classes. To get started with Online Learning, you should stay on track with deadlines, take more time to engage in courseword, get personal attention from professors, adn find help through counseling and other virtual services.
