Academics Rating

Classes are really easy, way too easy. I feel like I haven't learned anything being here in two years. They have barely any of the classes that I really needed to take for my major at the Lancaster Campus. Also, if you take all online courses be careful because you won't recieve all of your financial aid and nobody will tell you about it until you recieve a surprise bill in the mail. Even if you go double check with them in the office a few days before.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

Class size as HACC is relatively small, depending on the class itself. Professors here for the most part know all of their students by first name, which you sometimes won't get it a bigger university. HACC offers many classes to meet the needs of just about every major out there. The workload is relatively light for the most part, however exams are the absolute most important part since most of your points will come from them.
