Welcome Parents and Families

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions a family will make together. We understand that the process can be daunting whether this is the first or second generation of college students in your family. These pages have been designed as a resource. Please reach out to us should you have questions or need assistance.

Want more information about HCC's first semester enrollment process? Sign up for HCC Admissions' monthly newsletter for first semester students and parents. Each month we'll highlight important information about the enrollment process, paying for college, and transitioning from high school to college.

Join us for a Parent Orientation! Our next orientation will take place on Thursday, August 23rd at 9 AM in Aberdeen Hall, Room 228. We will have a panel discussion and the opportunity to hear and ask questions about the enrollment process, student services, advising and student learning expectations. Campus tours (bring your walking shoes), including a visit to Towson University Northeastern Maryland (TUNE), will be offered. TUNE representatives will also be on hand to provide information about their programs and our partnerships. A continental breakfast will be served. RSVP now!
