Affordability remains a top priority for all 28 Florida College System (FCS) institutions. The Division of Florida Colleges (DFC) requests data and information related to college affordability initiatives and textbook and instructional material affordability pursuant to sections (ss.) 1004.084 and 1004.085, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Rule 6A-14.092, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), Textbook Affordability.
HCC is committed to developing and implementing strategies to comply with textbook affordability procedures. Our main objective is to minimize the cost of textbooks to students. Changes to s. 1004.085, F.S., (though SB 7044) now require that a list of textbooks and instructional materials remain published for at least five academic years. The below textbook list is posted in compliance.
