Apply for Admission
We are excited you want to apply for admission to HCC! Whether you're seeking a degree, a transfer program, or workplace credentials, HCC has what you need.
Choose from a broad range of educational pathways to get to your goal, whether it is earning an associate degree, transferring to a four-year university, or learning the skills necessary to head to work. Additionally, HCC’s challenging honors programs provide leadership development and rigorous coursework, and supportive learning communities offer the chance to enrich your academic experience.
Howard Community College is a smart choice for your college courses and English language learning - a quality education built on value. We offer programs and courses for in-demand careers on a campus that's exactly what you'd expect at a U.S. college - green open spaces that invite students to stay and study.
Current HCC Students Applying to Nursing and Allied Health
Once you're a student at HCC, find out the distinct admissions requirements of your particular field of interest. Admission to the clinical component of allied health programs requires the successful completion of certain prerequisite courses. Always check first with an allied health advisor before taking a course elsewhere because it may not transfer to HCC.
Register for noncredit classes
If you’re interested in enhancing job skills or exploring a personal interest, sign up instead for one of our noncredit courses. There’s no need to apply for noncredit classes. Continuing Education classes are offered throughout the county on days, evenings, and weekends. There are no grades or exams (except for licensure courses) – just learning and enjoyment.
*A $25 application fee is required, with a waiver available under certain circumstances.
