How and When to Pay

Tuition and fees are subject to adjustment by the College's Board of Trustees based on the costs to operate the College and funding provided by the State and the County.

To estimate costs it is recommended that the student enter information using the Net Price Calculator.

This calculator provides estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost/price of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board/meals, and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

A thorough understanding of the four components what to pay, when to pay, ways to pay and where to pay, along with proper planning, ensures that students can take advantage of a successful beginning to their semester at HCC.

Ways to Pay

There are a number of ways for students to pay their bills.

A parent or guardian may also use these methods to pay a student's bill. Please be sure the parent or guardian has the student's H-ID (Harford ID) number, the amount they wish to apply to the bill, and the appropriate payment information (i.e. credit card number for credit card payment). For more information on these payment options please refer to the links below:
