    • WELCOME!
        • Welcome to the Division of Academic Development and Support Services. We are committed to our mission: to prepare students for the demands of college-level coursework. The Division of Academic Development and Support Services (DADSS) is comprised of the Academic Foundations Math Department, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Committee, Honors Program, Learning Community Program, ADJ Academic Support Services Department, and Transitional Program. The programs in this division focus on the individualized learning needs of each student in the development of the skills necessary for academic success. The division aims to support all HCCC students on the path to achieving their academic, career, and life goals.

      • Academic integrity is central to the pursuit of education. For students at HCCC, this means maintaining the highest ethical standards in completing their academic work. In doing so, students earn college credits by their honest efforts. When they are awarded a certificate or degree, they have attained a goal representing genuine achievement and can reflect with pride on their accomplishment. This is what gives college education its essential value.
        Violations of the principle of academic integrity include:
        • * Cheating on exams.
        • * Reporting false research data or experimental results.
        • * Allowing other students to copy one’s work to submit to instructors.
        • * Communicating the contents of an exam to other students who will be taking the same test.
        • * Submitting the same project in more than one course, without discussing this first with instructors.
        • * Submitting plagiarized work. Plagiarism is the use of another writer's words or ideas without properly crediting that person. This unacknowledged use may be from published books or articles, the Internet, or another student's work.

        When students act dishonestly in meeting their course requirements, they lower the value of education for all students. Students who violate the College’s policy on academic integrity are subject to failing grades on exams or projects, or for the entire course. Serious cases may be reported to a Division Dean or Director for further disciplinary action, including suspension or dismissal from HCCC.

        Detailed information on the College’s Academic Integrity Policy may be found in the HCCC Student Handbook. The handbook also contains useful information for students on completing research projects and avoiding plagiarism.
