Newsletter from Trustee Monica Flores Richart, District I
Nov 5, 2020
Since becoming your District I Houston Community College Trustee on January 1, my goal to increase enrollment has been challenged by COVID-19. Still, we have remained #HCCStrong. HCC is open and safe with flexible ways for you to begin or resume your learning experiences during this pandemic.
HCC is offering four attendance options to help you achieve your educational goals:
- 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 scheduled class time they select when enrolling, and never come to campus
There are new in-person protocols for students, faculty and staff. Everyone must pass a pre-screening each day before coming to campus. We have temperature checks at entrances, more surface cleaning and additional sanitizer stations.
We also have added extra classes and rearranged classrooms to ensure social distancing. When on campus, do your part by wearing a mask, staying six feet apart and washing your hands regularly. If you are sick, please stay at home.
Get started today at hccs.edu/now for Spring 2021 enrollment and financial aid information.
