Due the Covid-19 virus the College has transitioned to all online courses for the summer 2020 semester.  As a precaution the College is limiting access to the College campuses, and the HCC Bookstores on each campus are closed to the public.  To provide course materials for students the HCC Bookstores has an e-commerce website for student’s to place orders and have their summer textbooks shipped directly to them starting on April 27.  There is no charge for shipping, students will be able to use their financial aid and third party sponsored scholarships starting on May 7.  Please note that UPS usually takes three or four days to deliver your order.  Orders placed during the weekend will be processed on Monday morning.
