Overall Rating

Harrisburg Area Community College is an excellent stepping stone for me as I make my transition into not only the college student world, but also the adult world in general. The college goes to great lengths to accomidate the needs of every student and is very convient and cost appropriate. What I liked most about HACC was its flexibility with many classes being offered either daytime/nighttime as well as online and even some weekends. Prospective students with either children, a career, or just looking for a low cost alternative to universities should really consider HACC.
