HOW DO I GET TEXTBOOKS/WORKBOOKS/MATERIALS?
You are responsible for buying your books and materials. Most students do not receive enough financial aid to cover the costs of books and materials. The cost each semester could be $200 or more, depending on the number and type of courses you are taking. Textbooks can be purchased or rented at the HGTC bookstore or through online vendors.
IF I HAD AN IEP (INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PLAN) OR 504 IN HIGH SCHOOL, WHAT DO I DO IN COLLEGE?
Because you are enrolled in classes at HGTC and the UNIV-110 at CCU, you will need to reach out to both institutions to apply and submit paperwork to request accommodations.
- For CCU, connect with Accessibility and Disability Services! Bridge students with disabilities and medical conditions are encouraged to connect with the CCU Accessibility and Disability Services to request academic, housing, and dining accommodations. The following are just a few of academic accommodations: extended testing time, distraction-reduced testing environment, audio textbooks, and audio recording classes. All accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis and ADS staff will meet with you to discuss accommodations. Visit Connect with ADS through Accommodate to request accommodations.
- For HGTC, the Office for Accessibility and Disabilities provides students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from programs and services offered at HGTC. To access services and accommodations, students must first self-identify, obtain documentation of the disability, and make an appointment with an appropriate staff member. To obtain services, contact Beth Havens, Director of Student Development on the Conway campus at (843) 349-5249.
ONCE I ENROLL, DO MY PARENTS HAVE ACCESS TO MY COLLEGE INFORMATION?
According to federal legislation called Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the right to review and/or amend education records transfers from parents to the student at age 18 or enrollment in postsecondary education. You, the student, are the only one (aside from authorized college officials) who has the right to view your records and information or authorize others to view your information. If you want to allow your parents or other parties to have access to your HGTC information, complete the FERPA Waiver form in the Registrar's office on the HGTC Conway campus.
