I've had a great experience with HACC! I took all online courses, and I'm only a semester away from receiving my Associates in Accounting. The diversity in the school is amazing, as not only students of different ethnicities attend HACC, but also students of different ages, professions, and work and education backgrounds. HACC is helping me receive my Associates, it helped me receive admission into Millersville University, and it has helped me grow not only as a student but also as a person. Not only educational knowledge is gained, but also soft skills that you can use in the workplace and everyday life. Go HACC!

Overall, it's a good choice to go here either for a short program or for general education requirements before transferring to a 4-year school. Saves you a lot of money.

The people and the staff are all unique and come from a variety of backgrounds. Office for financial aid, student ID, parking pass, etc. is very efficient. So is the academic advising upstairs. You just have to advocate for yourself, which can be daunting if you're fresh out of high school. The college president is a respected member of the community, and ensures that students' needs are addressed.

Only complaint, not HACC's fault, is that the surrounding area is pretty run-down. One end of campus is an industrial zone, the other is a decayed area of Harrisburg. Commuting here can suck, especially at the intersection of Elmerton and Cameron, where the light doesn't let enough cars through the intersection per cycle.

HACC has grown and improved so much over the last 30+ years, and continues to surprise me.
I am returning to HACC at the age of 51 years old. All staff that I have met have been very helpful. I had the opportunity to take testing to be able to take a higher English that was recommended by my Advisor. I received Financial Aid and had queations on what that involves and how to use it and the Financial Aid team was very helpful. I know when I was attending HACC before the teachers were all very helpful, I am hoping that didn't change. I am very excited for August 27th so that I can get started on earning my Associates Degree in Human Services- Drug and Alcohol Counseling!
