Financial Aid for 2017-2018 School Year

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) opened on October 1, 2016. It is important that you fill out the FAFSA as soon as possible to ensure that your student gets the maximum amount of aid that they are eligible to receive. The deadline for completing the FAFSA for Maryland State aid is March 1, 2017. Harford's school code is 002075. For more information or assistance, contact the Financial Aid Office.

Registration Information for the Summer and Fall Semesters

Registration for the Summer and Fall semester will open early-Spring. Continuing students should contact their academic advisor to schedule an appointment. For more information, contact the Advising Department at 443.412.2301. If your student will be new to us in the summer or fall, they should stop by the Admissions Office for assistance with their first semester planning.

How can I get information on my student’s account?

Due to FERPA, the college is not allowed to give parents their student’s account and academic information. Encourage your student to fill out a Disclosure of Information Release Form and return to the Registration and Records Office. Once on file, this will allow the college to be able to communicate more effectively with parents.
