Student Identification Card
Student identification (ID) cards are available once a student has registered and paid for classes. The card will be needed for library and computer lab usage, admission to college activities, and voting in campus elections. ID cards are nontransferable and are to be held only by the students to whom they were issued. Students are required to be in possession of their ID card at all times. All ID cards are the property of HCC and must be shown when requested by a representative of the College District. If students lose their ID cards, they should report it to the campus police by calling 713.718.8888 as soon as it is discovered as missing. To obtain a replacement card, students must initiate the process at the college campus they attend.
Career Planning and Job Search
The Career Planning and Resources Office assists current and former HCC students with career assessments, career planning, identifying full or part-time employment, connecting with internship and externship opportunities. Workshops covering job and career readiness are held in classrooms and at various campuses throughout the district. The Virtual Career Network allows a student to search employment opportunities in the Houston-area, post resumes, register for various workshops, review upcoming events, participate in mentor discussions, and much more. There is a Career Planning Specialist at each college to help set a student’ career goals, resume writing, interviewing, and improving a student’s overall job readiness skills. Job fairs and other on-campus recruiting/hiring events are also made available to students and alumni. For more information, please visit: https://www.hccs.edu/support-services/career-planning.
