April 2020
Update From
Our Interim President

Dr. Jacquie Jackson wants the community to know that every decision Harford makes at this time has a simple goal in mind: to help our College move forward while protecting the health and safety of our campus community. To that end, the campus will be closed for the remainder of the spring semester and we’ll proceed in an online-only learning and working environment through at least May 16 . We appreciate the patience, support, and understanding of the community and will continue to provide you with timely updates. Be well and stay safe, Harford County!

Harford is proud of all our students, especially when they distinguish themselves in scholarly ways. We're pleased to announce last semester's President's and Deans' Lists recognizing our students' academic achievements. One of the highest academic honors a college student can achieve is earning a place on one of these prestigious lists.

See if you know anyone on the  President's List or  Deans' List and make sure to congratulate them on all their hard work!
