Drop Off and Pick Up Reminder
See to Succeed is a program offered by the City of Houston Health Dept. to provide comprehensive eye exams and glasses at no cost to students up to age 18. It is a school based program.
Paperwork can be found with the Nurse Shioura or Mr. Estrada in Room 110.
HCC Ferpa Forms
HCC FERPA Forms allow professors and parents to communicate once and only if students turn completed forms.
The first form is the notary form. This form is used when students are unable to be in person at the HCC Campus Registration Office. Once complete, students submit the form to HCC. Students/parents should submit the completed Notary form to their Grade Level Dean.
The second form, the FERPA Release Form, is the traditional form used in non-Covid times. Students complete this form in person at the HCC Campus Registration Office.
HCC Forms can be found here.
