SEXUAL HARASSMENT


It is a violation of HCC policy for an employee, agent, or student of the college to engage in sexual
harassment as defined in the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines. Any
student who has a complaint concerning this policy has the opportunity to seek resolution of such a
complaint in accordance with procedures set forth in the student handbook. Report any complaints
immediately

to College Administration or call the institution Equity & Compliance Office 713.718.8271



ATTENDANCE AND WITHDRAWAL POLICIES

The State of Texas imposes penalties on students who drop courses excessively. Students are limited to
no more than SIX

total co
urse withdrawals throughout their educational career at a Texas public college
or university.




To help students avoid having to drop/withdraw from any class, HCC has instituted an Early Alert
process by which your professor will “alert” you and Distance
Education (DE) counselors that you might
fail a class because of excessive absences and/or poor academic performance.


Contact your DE
professor regarding your academic performance or a DE counselor to learn about helpful HCC resources
(e.g. online tutorin
g, child care, financial aid, job placement, etc.).


In order to withdraw from your DE class, you MUST first contact your DE professor, PRIOR to the
withdrawal deadline to receive a “W” on your transcript
.


After the withdrawal deadline has passed, you
wil
l receive the grade that you would have earned.


Zeros averaged in for required coursework not
submitted will lower your semester average significantly, most likely resulting in a failing grade of an “F”.
It is the responsibility of the student to withdraw

from the class; however, your professor reserves the
right to withdraw you without your request due to excessive absences.


If you do not feel comfortable
contacting your professor to withdraw, you may contact a

DE counselor.


However, please do
not
conta
ct

both a DE counselor and your DE professor to request a withdrawal; either one is sufficient.



The final withdrawal deadline should be listed in your syllabus (or can be found on the distance
education website under the Academic Calendar link in the Cu
rrent Student area).
Classes of other
duration (mini
-
term, flex
-
entry, 8
-
weeks, etc.) may have different final withdrawal deadlines. Please
review HCC’s online “Academic Calendar by Term” or contact HCC Registrar’s Office at 713.718.8500 to
determine mini
-
term class withdrawal deadlines.
