    I transferred to Hcc from ccbc I realy wish I would have just started at Hcc first. It's a good school that helps you when you need it. I had to re take a pre calc class and was failing for the second time! I was trying so hard and was so frustrated! The tutoring center helped me pass the class with a B! I went from an F to a B! It was so empowering and rewarding to have the support I needed to pass a class I struggled in!

    Howard Community College is quite affordable in comparison to UMD, College Park. Most teachers I have had here I have gotten my moneys worth out of the classes.

    All in all yes it is worth it. They are especially known for their nursing program. The only thing for that program it's that it's almost a 1-2 year wait to get into it so applying for that when your finish your prereqs is strongly suggested or maybe even right before your done! As I stated before they are very helpful with all of the extra studying activities they offer which are very helpful.
