How can I plan for my HCC courses and my high school schedule?
When scheduling in January with your high school, select a full load of courses at HCPSS. Howard Community College typically publishes their course schedule for the fall in late April / early May. At that time, you can work closely with your high school counselor to adjust your schedule as needed. Several collaborative hours have also been scheduled to support students with this process, the details of which can be found here. Please see the timeline, below, that has been developed to synthesize a college schedule with high school:
January / February: Register for all courses at your home high school for the upcoming school year. Howard Community College does not publish their schedule of Fall courses until May, as they follow a college calendar, so we want all students to have a full registration at their high school to ensure progress towards high school graduation requirements.
April: Parents and students complete the steps outlined on pages 1-3 of this document. All steps must be completed by the student.
Summer (May - August): Work with your high school counselor and your school’s HCC Admissions and Advising counselor to elect courses and finalize registration
