Policy on Sexual Harassment

All institutions of higher education in Illinois are required by state law to inform their student bodies of the illegality of sexual harassment. In order to comply with this requirement, HTC notifies its students and displays information regarding their rights in common areas such as residence halls, administration buildings and libraries. For more information please see the Illinois Department of Human Rights website by clicking here.

Private Alternative Education Loans

HTC students take advantage of Federal Direct Student Loans in limited numbers. Most students receive Grant and Scholarship aid only. In very rare cases, students will seek outside educational financing. The institution will certify enrollment for students, along with providing other necessary or required information (i.e. cost of attendance). In no cases will the institution promote or suggest a particular lending institution, nor does the institution have a preferred lender list. However, consistent with the law, the institution will provide and/or complete the Private Loan Self-Certification form upon request by the student. Copies of the Private Loan Self-Certification form can be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.

Rights and responsibilities or recipients of federal direct loans can be found here.

Transmitting or downloading any material that you do not have the right to make available and that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party is prohibited.
Installing or distributing pirated or unlicensed software is also forbidden. Violation of these requirements may subject students, faculty and staff to civil and criminal liabilities. Students, faculty or staff who violate federal copyright law do so at their own risk. Copyright status is applied to a work as soon as it is created. Users should assume that all writings and images are copyrighted.

Title 17 of the United States Code (17 USC §501 et seq.) outlines remedies for copyright infringement that may include some or all of the following: obtaining an injunction to stop the infringing activity; impounding and disposing of the infringing articles; an award to the copyright owner of actual damages and the profits of the infringer, or in the alternative, an award of statutory damages which may be increased if the infringement is found to be willful; an award of two times the amount of the license fee a copyright owner could have gotten; an award of the full costs incurred in bringing an infringement action, and the award of attorney’s fees; and for criminal copyright infringement, fines and imprisonment.

Hebrew Theological College is required by Federal Law – H.R. 4137 to make an annual disclosure informing students that illegal distribution of copyrighted materials may lead to civil and/or criminal penalties.

Hebrew Theological College reserves the right to suspend or terminate network access to any campus user that violates this policy and Network access may be suspended if any use is impacting the operations of the network. Violations may be reported to appropriate authorities for criminal or civil prosecution. The existence and imposition of sanctions do not protect members of the campus community from any legal action by external entities.

Alternatives to Illegal Downloading

Illegal downloads hurt artists and deter the incentive to create. U.S. laws protect the rights of individuals regarding their own works. There are free or inexpensive sites that students can use without violating copyright law. The RIAA provides a list of authorized music services at allows use of artwork in the public domain.

The Israel Experience Program (IEP) of Hebrew Theological College enables HTC students to spend a year of college study in a seminary in Israel. A year in Israel is a challenging and enriching experience that serves as a guide in developing a lifestyle consonant with Torah values. Students can earn up to 30 credits for their Fall and Spring semesters of college studies and are provided academic advising to map out their course of study upon their return, culminating in a Bachelor of Arts degree.
