Get Your Harford ID + Library Card

Starting Monday, August 16, we will no longer require appointments.

Currently enrolled or returning HCC credit students who have not yet received their HCC ID can go to the Library and apply for their ID card beginning Monday, August 16 and continuing for the duration of the fall semester. In addition, the standard $15 replacement fee for lost or stolen IDs will be waived as a courtesy. The student's assigned H# and a valid form of identification are required to receive an HCC ID. Students can receive a free lanyard or cell phone wallet when they get their ID cards, while supplies last.

Where: HCC Library's 2nd floor Circulation Desk area.

You will need to bring your assigned H# (ID number assigned to all students and employees) and a valid form of identification with you to your appointment.

We accept the following forms of identification:

  • Valid Driver's License or Learner's Permit
  • Valid State MVA ID Card
  • Valid Government ID
  • Valid US Passport
  • Valid Permanent Resident Card
  • Valid Employment Authorization Card
  • Valid Visa or Passport From Another Country
  • Valid Driver's License From Another Country


Please arrive at the first floor entrance (by Parking Lot L).  The Library will be locked, so please call 443-412-2268 to notify staff you have arrived if we do not see you.


Please note that IDs are printed by Cathy Boston in Campus Operations for security swipe access. The Library only takes Employee photos. We will notify Cathy that the ID can be printed and she will arrange a time for you to pick up your ID.
