Student Ombudsman/Judicial Services

HCTC recognizes the rights of students, and the college provides support for students who may disagree with college policy or who have a grievance.  The Student Ombudsman is a student advocate who provides counsel and support for students who may have a conflict.  The Ombudsman deals with financial appeals, grade appeals, and Code of Conduct issues.  Students are encouraged to ask questions and visit the Ombudsman’s office when they have an issue with college policy or procedures.

Every effort is made to provide Ombudsman support at each of our college sites.  HCTC's goal is to resolve all appeals and conflicts within a reasonable amount of time.  Please contact the Student Ombudsman if you have a question about services provided by this office.

HCTC Student and Staff Health and Wellness

HCTC recognizes the importance of health in our service area.  The college is committed to providing information and resources to students, staff, and faculty.  HCTC leads our community in addressing the health and lifestyle of the population.

The college sponsors an online magazine called Student Health 101.  The magazine is an important resource for students and staff.  It is a monthly publication that provides wellness information and motivational articles.  HCTC provides smoking cessation classes, wellness walks, employee exercise classes, flu shots, and health screenings at several campus sites.
