Get Your Harford ID + Library Card

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 during regular hours of operation. No appointment is required.

The standard $15 replacement fee for lost IDs will be waived as a courtesy for returning students that received IDs prior to Fall Semester 2021 and Spring Semester 2022. Beginning Monday, May 23rd, 2022, the $15 replacement fee will be reinstated for all lost student IDs.

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

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

Don’t know your H#? Login to Owlnet, click on the “All About Me” tab, select the “Update Addresses and Phones” link located inside the box labeled “My Personal Information”. Your H# will display next to your name.

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



All employees will have their HCC Employee ID photo taken at the Library, but will not receive their ID on site. HCC Employee IDs are printed by Campus Operations as they are coded for security swipe building access. Once an employee has had their photo saved, they may contact Campus Operations to arrange for receipt of their physical ID card.
