Dedicated staff in the CARE Center connect students to resources and services available at the College or within the community.

Students may be eligible to borrow computers, calculators, internet access hotspots and other equipment for the spring, summer and/or fall semester at no cost. Generally, students should be enrolled in six credit hours. However, students with certain critical needs are still encouraged to complete the TechLoan eligibility form. Students will receive a response to the form submission by the following business day.

Please visit the student tab in myHACC for Brightspace and Zoom resources for students. Students will have access to Brightspace and Zoom through myHACC. The instructor will email students the appropriate Zoom link for that class, and class will be held via Zoom instead of on campus for all remote classes. In addition, your Zoom login information may be posted in the Brightspace (D2L) information for your class.

The chat assists with quick troubleshooting and provides technical advice for students who may be experiencing difficulties with their devices, e-mail, Google Drive, Office365, Zoom, D2L/Brightspace and other items that User Support would ordinarily help with.

HACC tutors are available Monday through Saturday to support you. To learn more, please visit the tutoring schedules webpage.
