Harford Community College offers a quality, affordable academic experience for students who wish to pursue an Associate's degree or certificate, or to transfer to a four-year college or university. With over 70 programs of study, Harford has the right program for everyone! Whether you wish to explore a variety of fields or have already decided on a major, Harford is a great place to start your higher education.

While encouraging students to excel academically, professors and faculty are readily available and encourage learning outside the classroom. The combination of faculty support and small class size (22:1 student-to-faculty ratio) promotes classroom participation and fosters an environment that offers personal attention resulting in academic success.

  • Small class sizes with individual attention - 22:1 student to faculty ratio
  • 28 student clubs, 2 service clubs, 10 academic clubs, and 4 SGA leadership positions
  • More than 2,500 online classes
  • Scholarships to deserving students
  • More than 90% of the classrooms are "Smart Classroom" that include Smart boards, white boards, video projection units, and instructor PCs.
  • HCC students who transfer to in-state, four-year universities have higher GPAs in their junior and senior years than those from any other community college in Maryland.
