Out-of-State Online Disclaimer

Out-of-State Online Students

Harford Community College offers online courses and programs to in-state and out-of-state students. A recent higher education policy requires colleges and universities to receive approval from states/jurisdictions to offer classes to their residents. Some states/jurisdictions also charge colleges and universities a fee to offer classes to students who are their residents. This policy does not apply to current or prospective Harford Community College students who live in Maryland.

Harford Community College is approved to offer classes in most states/jurisdictions. However, in order to comply with the policy, Harford Community College is not registering students who reside in the following states/jurisdictions: District of Columbia, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wyoming. If you have any questions regarding credit registration, please contact the Records and Registration Office at 443-412-2222.
