History of HCC
The Houston Community College District (HCCD) was created under the governance of the Houston Independent School District (HISD) as the result of a public referendum on May 18, 1971. In August of that year, more than 5,700 students enrolled in workforce education courses held at the Houston Technical Institute. In the following semester, academic transfer classes were added and taught at six HISD locations. By 1977, HCC had an enrollment of more than 24,000 students and had earned full accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). As a result of state legislation, HISD voted in 1984 to dedicate a specific portion of its property tax levy to the College for facilities, equipment and operating expenses. In 1989, HCC established its own Board of Trustees. Also in 1989, the Stafford Municipal School District was annexed. By 2000, the HCC enrollment reached more than 50,000 students. State legislation in 1995 designated the “service area” of HCC to include the Houston, Alief, Katy, Spring Branch and North Forest school districts, as well as the Stafford Municipal School District. HCC also serves the Fort Bend Independent School District.

Non - Credit Audit
During the first week of classes, an individual may register to audit most academic courses in the Humanities, Mathematics/Natural Sciences or Social Sciences program areas. The audit provides the usual learning opportunities without the course requirements such as attendance, written work, and tests. An audit cannot be changed to credit or credit to audit after the close of the Add/Drop period. Audit courses will be noted on the student’s permanent record as "Audit". Students receiving financial aid, Social Security, or veterans benefits may not be eligible for benefits for audit courses. Computer Science Technology courses, Commercial Music, Physical Education, private instruction, and all other workforce courses may not be audited.

Academic Progress
A student’s academic progress will be evaluated for the first time after a minimum of nine attempted semester hours. Each status is defined with the required action. Status Good Standing Probation Continued Probation Suspension Definition Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above Cumulative GPA below 2.0 Cumulative GPA below 2.0 and term 2.0 or above Previous term status of probation or continued probation and term GPA falls below 2.0 Action Required None

Grade Changes
Questions regarding errors in grades should be directed to the Admissions and Records Office. Clerical errors will be corrected immediately by the Admissions and Records Office. Other grade changes must be initiated by the instructor through the appropriate academic dean. A change of grade request must be received within one year after the grade was issued to ensure any necessary corrections. (See www.hccs.edu/students, Student Course Grade Appeal Procedure.) A $20 research fee will be charged for any request made after one year.

Repetition of Courses
If a student repeats a course in which a grade (A-F) has been received, the highest grade received is the permanent grade for the course and will be used in computing the grade point average. All grades earned in a given course will be entered on the transcript. Other colleges may compute the GPA differently than HCC.

Honors
Each fall and spring semester, full-time students who complete 12 or more semester hours with a grade point average of 3.5 or better are named to the Dean’s List. Students with 12 or more semester hours with a grade point average of 3.0 to 3.49 will be included on the Honor List. A

Students enrolled in multiple summer sessions will have their entire summer’s work evaluated for determination of their academic status.

General Course Information
Students in certain Health Sciences programs are required to maintain a grade of "C" in all courses in order to continue in the program. Students not meeting these standards may continue to enroll at HCC in other programs as long as they maintain minimum HCC requirements. Students are responsible for knowing whether they have passed the minimum standards for continuation in college. Ineligible students who register will be subject to dismissal with forfeiture of all tuition and fees.

Grade Report
Grades are available online within one week of the end of the course.

Transcript of College Work
A transcript of college credits is an official copy of the student’s permanent record bearing the HCC seal and the signature of the Registrar. Students may request a transcript copy by Internet at www.transcriptsplus.net/tpo. Requests may also be made at any HCC campus. There is a charge for transcript processing. All admissions information must be on file and all holds cleared before a student’s record will be released. A student should allow a week for delivery following the transcript request. Additional time should be allowed at the close of a semester. Students should request transcripts of work completed at another institution from that institution.

Requirements of Satisfactory Progress For Veterans
In order to be eligible for continued veterans benefits, a veteran who is placed on academic probation must attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 for two consecutive semesters (fulltime) or 24 semester hours (part-time). The student may continue to enroll at HCC while on academic probation, if all other conditions for enrollment are met; however, the Veterans Administration will be notified that the student is not meeting satisfactory progress requirements.

Transfer Policy
An evaluation of transfer credit is completed at the time a student files the degree plan. All transfer students should meet with a counselor prior to enrollment and no later than their first semester at HCC to file their degree plan. All official transcripts from accredited transfer institutions must be requested by the student and sent by the institution to the HCC Office of Admissions and Records. HCC awards transfer credit for passing work completed at accredited colleges and universities. An academic general education transfer course with a grade of “D” or above will be accepted. A technical workforce transfer course with a grade of “D” or above will be accepted if it was earned within five years of a student’s initial enrollment (or re-enrollment) at HCC. Technical workforce credit older than five years may be transferred by departmental approval only. Grades for transfer courses are not calculated in the GPA. This policy is applicable to all HCC programs except those, such as Health Sciences, that specify other requirements. Students who transfer credits with a GPA of less than 2.0 must earn additional grade points in the Houston Community College System to offset this deficiency. Students will not be graduated from HCC with less than a 2.0 GPA. HCC has articulation agreements with Texas public senior institutions and some private institutions for the acceptance of HCC credits (usually not more than 66 semester hours)

Requirements of Satisfactory Progress for Financial Aid Students
Financial aid students must meet the following satisfactory progress requirements: • Must maintain a term GPA of 2.0 • Must complete at least 75 percent of attempted courses for the academic year • Must enroll in courses leading to an HCC degree or certificate Students who do not maintain the standards listed above will be ineligible to receive financial aid. A student may appeal a suspension of financial aid by submitting a written request to the college Financial Aid Office. A detailed description of the financial aid standards of progress requirement is available in the college Financial Aid Office.

General Course Information
toward university degree requirements. A student who intends to transfer to a senior institution should consult an HCC counselor to design a course of study to avoid inappropriate course selection and possible loss of credit upon transfer. There is no uniform policy among colleges and universities regarding transfer of credit with a course grade of “D.” Developmental courses are not transferable. A candidate for a degree or certificate is not required to purchase a diploma. A student may request their records be reviewed at the conclusion of their course work so the appropriate degree or certificate will be recorded on the student’s transcript.

Graduation Honors
Graduation honors will be awarded to students with superior cumulative GPAs. The following classifications of honors will be recognized on the student’s transcript and diploma: Highest Honors High Honors Honors GPA 3.80 or above GPA 3.60 to 3.79 GPA 3.35 to 3.59

Application for Graduation
Prior to graduation, students must have official transcripts of credits transferred from other institutions sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. A candidate for any degree or certificate must meet the graduation requirements in the catalog for the year of initial enrollment unless the student elects to graduate under the requirements of a later catalog. The candidate must indicate the catalog of choice when filing for graduation. A student who does not enroll at HCC for a period of more than one calendar year is required to graduate under the catalog requirement for the year of readmission. To be considered as a candidate for the AA degree, AS degree, AAT degree, AAS degree, or Certificate of Completion, a student must submit a formal application for graduation and an updated educational plan at the time of registration for the final semester or not later than the graduation application deadline. If the student is not approved for graduation during the semester or instructional period in which the application is filed, HCC will retain the fee for one year and apply it when approval for graduation is granted. Students who are unable to complete their degree plan on file at HCC may transfer up to 42 semester hours of equivalent courses from an accredited institution. These courses must be completed within three years of their last semester of enrollment at HCC. However, all other graduation requirements must be satisfied, including the residency requirement that 18 semester hours of a student’s degree must be completed at HCC.

HCC will use the following guidelines to compute honors eligibility: • The student must complete at least 18 semester hours credit at HCC. • The student must complete requirements for the AA, AS, AAT or AAS degree. • The grades in all HCC courses will figure in the cumulative GPA (developmental courses are exeluded from the degree GPA). • Courses taken through the preceding fall semester will be used in computing the GPA for the ceremony. The student must have completed 75 percent of the course work for the degree at that time.

Participation in the Graduation Exercises
HCC holds one student graduation ceremony each year in May. Candidates for degrees and certificates are encouraged to attend the graduation ceremonies. Students who completed course requirements the previous December, or who plan to complete course requirements the following August, may participate in the May ceremony.

Priority Application Deadlines:
• Fall - October 15 • Spring - February 15 • Summer - June 15

Academic Degrees
The Associate in Arts, the Associate of Arts in Teaching, and the Associate in Science degrees can give you a good start before transferring to a four-year university. These academic degrees provide a solid foundation through a traditional liberal arts education. Studies include the humanities and fine arts, social sciences, communication, teacher education, mathematics, and science. The liberal arts develop critical and analytical skills demanded by constantly changing environments. After transfer to a fouryear university, you may concentrate in a major area of study during your junior and senior years. 2425; ENVR 1401; GEOL 1401, 1402, 1403, 1404; PHYS 1401, 1402, 2325 & 2125, 2326 & 2126.

Associate in Arts (AA)
The Associate in Arts is intended primarily for students planning on transferring to a senior college or university to receive a baccalaureate degree in the following areas: communication, business, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts. Commencing the fall of 1999, all Associate in Arts academic core curriculum courses taken at HCC are guaranteed to transfer and count toward the core curriculum at all Texas public higher educational institutions. In addition, if a student successfully completes any part of a field of study (FOS) curriculum developed by the Texas Higher Education Board, the FOS courses will be transferred to a Texas public higher educational institution and must be substituted for that institution’s lower division requirements in the degree program containing the field of study. The student shall receive full academic credit for the transferred FOS courses in the related university degree program. HCC has developed specialized transfer plans for specific majors and for specific universities. Students should obtain appropriate transfer plans including FOS courses from a counselor. Students also need to be aware that universities often have limitations on the amount of credit that can transfer from community colleges to universities. That limit is usually around sixty-six semester hours taken at community colleges.
