HCAT'S Mandatory Student Orientation 

We have scheduled our fall student orientation to assist you in preparation for the upcoming semester.  At this meeting you will have a chance to meet the program staff and your instructors.  Our instructors will present important information about HCAT policy and classroom procedure.  We have scheduled two dates and two locations for your convenience.

If you are a Baking & Pastry student, you may want to attend the orientation scheduled at our main campus in Arnold where most of your classes will take place.  If you are a Culinary Arts student, you may want to attend the session in Glen Burnie where most of your classes will take place.
