    Students who are in advanced classes or classes beyond their grade level may request an override to register for academic classes above their age level. Official documentation of advanced status will be required.

    As students enjoy their summer classes, they need to remember that college is in session and administrative offices are open for business. Students are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior and language and follow HCC, KOC, and class rules. Students are expected

    • Behave in a friendly, cooperative manner toward other students, instructors, and staff. 
    • Respect the ideas, person, and property of others.
    • Be able to work independently.
    • Be able to focus on a task to completion.

    Students may be excluded from activities or dismissed from Kids on Campus for not adhering to the behavior expectations explained above or:

    Please register early. Class size is limited. Courses with insufficient enrollment one week prior to the start of each class session will be canceled. You will be notified by phone or email if a class is canceled.


    If your child cannot attend a course, please notify us immediately. If notification is received by the Monday two weeks prior to the class start date, 100% refund of tuition and fees will be issued. For cancellations received within two weeks prior to class start date, tuition will be refunded, fees will be withheld. No refunds will be given on or after the class start date. Refunds will not be made for non-attendance. Parents/Guardians are responsible for any tuition/fee difference resulting from a student transfer.

Outstanding balances may be sent to collections. Students may not begin class until consent form is complete and payment has been made in full.

    Registration opens on January 31, 2019. You may register online, in-person, mail, or fax. Online forms can be found on the Kids on Campus registration web page.


    Scholarships may be available for Howard County residents who meet certain income criteria. View the Kids on Campus Scholarship/Financial Aid Application (PDF) for details. Please read and fully complete the application form and submit it with the required documentation.


    HCC is committed to providing an accessible education and supportive learning environment for all students. To help us meet this goal, parents of students with documented disabilities who require special accommodations must submit a letter to the Kids on Campus coordinator indicating the student’s needs and the type of accommodation that may be required. You must contact the KOC coordinator each time the student enrolls in a class even if you have received accommodations in the past. The KOC coordinator must receive the letter at least 30 days prior to the start of class in order to provide time to assess and arrange for reasonable accommodations. Inadequate notice may result in your child not being able to attend camp. All information will be kept confidential. HCC does not provide personal medical assistants, care attendants, or aides of any other type. Parents are not permitted to attend camp with their child.


    To join a waitlist for a full class, go here. You will be notified if a spot becomes available. Register for another class in the event the class remains full.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
