Message from the President

Dr. Phillips, President of Harford Community College

Welcome to Harford Community College! I am honored to join this dedicated college community as its ninth President and look forward to advancing its culture of excellence as we carry out the mission of the College. Our number one goal is to support student achievement. As you explore this website, you will learn that the College offers more than 80 programs of study that lead to an associate degree or certificate, along with the resources you need to help guide you along the way.

HCC offers many programs and services to help students succeed with engagement, retention, completion, and transfer. My advice to students is to seek help if you need it. Don’t be afraid to ask! We are here to help you achieve your dreams.

You can complete your first two years at HCC and stay in Harford County to pursue your educational goals at a four-year institution. With the Towson University Northeastern Maryland building located just across Thomas Run Road, completing a bachelor’s degree in certain programs is possible right here on campus. The University Center, Northeastern Maryland, conveniently located nearby on Rt. 22 in Aberdeen, may also help you achieve your education and career goals through its university partners.

Continuing Education classes are not required for degree-seeking students, but are often helpful to learn or update skills required for the workplace. Continuing Education also provides a dizzying menu of programs and courses that encourage lifelong learning for recreation, leisure, and personal enrichment.

Harford provides the complete college experience through a rich tradition of rigorous academic programs, excellence in teaching and learning by dedicated and innovative faculty, and knowledgeable staff who care about the students we serve. I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities available as you begin this new journey.

Our athletic teams are consistently ranked among the nation's best at the NJCAA Division I level, our Student Activities programs are vibrant and varied with more than 30 student organizations to join, opportunities to study abroad abound, Cultural Events offers a spectacular and ever-changing array of quality performances to entertain you, our beautiful campus landscape is home to new and improved facilities each year – there are so many ways to enhance your experience as a Harford Community College student.

You can have it all at HCC!
