HCC Student Email
When you register for a credit course at Howard Community College, a personal HCC student email account is automatically created for you. Your HCC email address is the official email address for communication with the college. Make sure you check your email regularly. Students are expected to read all information received at their HCC email account; don't miss out on important information such as dates and deadlines, financial aid information, graduation notifications, and campus activities. Be sure to delete unwanted emails and empty the Deleted Items Folder to ensure you can send and receive email. You are expected to adhere to all college procedures and guidelines while using your email. We will make every effort to ensure the privacy of your student record. HCC encourages you to use this account to communicate with your instructors and classmates as well as to receive notification of upcoming college events and activities. You can read and send email from any computer with Internet access. You can also use your email credentials (HCC Student Login ID and password) to log into myHCC. If you need assistance with your HCC email account you can visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Help Desk at 443-518-4444.
