Located in Columbia, Maryland, Howard Community College (HCC) is dedicated to assisting prospective students in whatever educational goals they may have. Whether a student hopes to achieve an associate’s degree, begin a bachelor’s degree at HCC and then transfer to a four-year institution, receive specialized career education, or practice study skills and learning techniques, this school is uniquely suited to help a student reach these goals.
This community college is partnered with several distinctive four-year universities. This allows students to transfer smoothly to a bachelor’s degree program. Unlike other community colleges whose course credits may or may not transfer to a four-year university program, students here never have to worry about losing hard-earned credits in the transfer process. Students only take courses that are guaranteed to transfer allowing students to jump-start their bachelor’s degree program in a risk-free way.
Transfer of credits isn’t required, however. Many students choose to leave school with an associate’s degree and begin searching for employment in the career of their choice. These students benefit from the inexpensive tuition and renowned educational quality and often return to school later to finish their degree by using credits achieved at HCC.
