How do I get text books/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 Chanticleer Store or through online vendors. The bookstore is located in the HTC Center.
How do I upload my photo for my CINO card?

Once I’m enrolled, 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. Some exceptions may apply if a student submits a written request/documentation to the Office of the Registrar. By doing so, you give them access to financial records, grades and other information. Please discuss this matter with your parents.
