I really enjoyed being able to choose to have such a flexible schedule when enrolling in upcoming semester classes. I love the fact that there are not just college degree options offered, but continuing education credit hours and certificates are some of the many options as well! This college also has many articulation and continuing education programs; meaning a lot of Bachelor's level colleges will take HACC credits and ensures smooth transfers, wile saving thousands of dollars! Harrisburg Area Community College is affordable, local, and a wonderful opportunity overall for many adults of all ages to jumpstart their careers and education! I do not see a need to make any changes at this time.

I am enrolled in the Medical Assisting program, it is a true privilage to work with such fine students and staff. The Professors work with you and encourage you throughout your time at HACC. The tutoring center is of great value, a place where educated tutors can help you as well as fellow students. You can make many friends if you just be yourself and have fun. Share your story and follow your dreams. Never give up!
Studying at HACC wasn't my original plan, but I have saved so much money earning credits here and definitely feel as though my experience has been a positive one, so positive in fact that I am considering earning my two year degree from HACC before transferring to a four-year school. Professors understand and respect the diverse community that their students come from, allowing students to observe the diversity in the lives and stories around them to create a learning experience unlike something that would be found at a traditional school.
