* The alphabetical distribution of students is subject to change. Students are required to meet with their assigned Designated School Official (DSO). Designated school officials serve as liaisons between international students, HCC and the U.S. government. DSOs issue necessary immigration forms, guide students through the process of studying in the U.S., maintain records in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, known as SEVIS, and more.
