Support for Military and Veterans

Stephen HarperHarford Community College has many resources available for military, veterans, and their dependents. We have collected as many of these resources as possible in one place to help you locate them easily.

Harford seeks to create an enhanced learning environment by providing military, veterans, and their dependents with support and resources in a friendly atmosphere. Harford strives to address the unique issues and challenges that these students face when entering the college environment.

Harford Community College is a member of the Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) and received the Military Friendly School award. Harford is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Military to process educational benefit claims for Military and Veteran students, as well as their qualifying dependents. For more information on how to request these benefits, students should review the information located on HCC's Support for Military & Veterans Services web page. Information and forms required to process educational claims can be found on this web page. Students receiving VA educational benefits are responsible for the payment of all tuition, fees and text books according to the College billing dates and/or VA regulations. Charges for these items will not be deferred because VA checks have not been received by the student. VA students are required to adhere to the standards of academic progress in order to remain eligible for educational benefits. Questions regarding the processing of educational benefits should be directed to the Coordinator for Military and Veterans Services. Students should consult the VA website for specfic information about VA educational benefits.

Students Called to Active Duty

Harford works with military students called to active duty to help make the transition as seamless as possible. Students simply need to submit a copy of their orders along with the Credit Schedule Change form to the Registration and Records office.

A special section of the Student Center has been designated for use by members of the Veteran's club and is located in the lower level of the Student Center on campus.
