Choosing Harford Community College sets you on a path to define your place in the world. No matter your age, background, challenges or goals, Harford meets you where you are and takes you where you want to go.

How do we do it? By putting you face-to-face with award-winning faculty — not teaching assistants in large lecture halls. By awarding $1 million in scholarships and grants each year so the cost of college isn’t a barrier. By providing you with state-of-the-art labs, equipment, and facilities that rival top four-year colleges and universities. And by giving you the support you need to achieve success. Online or in person, our team will guide you through the entire admissions, first semester advising and registration process.
