Sex Offender Registration


Not later than the seventh day after the date on which the person begins to attend school, a person required to register under Chapter 62, Code of Criminal Procedure, who is a student at a public institution of higher education shall report that fact to the TCC Police Department.

The offender shall provide the TCC Police Department or the local law enforcement authority all information the person is required to provide under Code of Criminal Procedure Section 62.02(b).

State law prohibits some sex offenders on parole or probation from going within 1,000 feet of an area where “children normally gather.” The frequent presence of children on TCC campuses requires that sex offenders on parole or probation check with their parole or probation officers to learn if they fall under this prohibition. Those who do fall under the prohibition may take distance learning classes, but only if presence on campus is not required.
