Newsletter from Trustee Dr. Pretta VanDible Stallworth, District IX
Nov 5, 2020
Dear District IX Family,
Houston Community College has been dedicated to protecting the health and well being of its students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The College follows guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Students and visitors are greeted with stringent protocols at all campuses including a temperature check before being allowed entrance.
All facilities are sanitized throughout the day and social distancing is required. Additional class labs and sections have been added so enrollments in each can be kept to a safe number. Course enrollment has been adjusted to ensure the safety of all our students.
All facilities are sanitized throughout the day and social distancing is required. HCC shifted its traditional courses to an online format. Today students can choose from four learning modes:
- Flex Campus: Students enroll in classes and have the choice to attend either online or in-person at the scheduled dates and times
- Lab-Based Courses: HCC’s skills-based, hands-on lab courses host fewer students per section to enable social distancing
- Online Anytime: Students take classes online at any time. These are traditional online classes, and students never come to campus
- Online on a Schedule: Students take classes online at the scheduled class time they select when enrolling, and never come to campus
Enroll early for classes this Spring semester. Register now for classes beginning January 19.
