4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost is worth it, and there is aid available through state grants and scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity, and there is opportunity to meet people who are in all stages of life.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Because it is a small school, there may not always be multiple time-slots available for classes you need, so you may have to manipulate your schedule around required courses that are offered only once that semester. Also, the ease of being able to transfer credits depends on the acceptance of the transfer school/program and/or whether there are transfer agreements in place.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Campus is small, but there is an athletic center with courts, weight room, and pool; a library; and student center.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I haven't used the career center, but there is an alumni network available through which students/alumni can search for job postings.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I took one online math course, and I liked that we were held individually responsible to learn the material as outlined in the schedule, and there was more than one method of learning. The course was set up in a way that students could learn from the textbook, the professor's notes/online classroom, and/or through interaction with others in the class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Since my college is affiliated to several 4 year universities so the HACC students have about the same workload as the students that are attending 4 year school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since I am a full time student here so Financial aid money sometime get short for my tuition and that's all.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I just want to say one word about the virtual classes and that is unbelievably easy!

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Its just a two year college.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors are easy to get an access to. They are flexible with students and their work schedule like if somebody need help or having a trouble with the course they will take out some time for the student.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Well I am working as a student worker at Harrisburg Area Community College in Advising center. My job helps to extend my student network. I love the way advisors help the students here. They always try to make sure that everybody is getting a help to their degree program.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: The classes and extracurricular activities have been very flexible for me throughout the semester. I have been very active in classes as well as in college activities such as Students Hearing Board, Student Programming Board, and other clubs. This is all because I have been remained in touch with my academic advisor.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is generic. The teachers try but the higher management is wasting too much money. Find a better school that allows full financial aid.

College Junior

Career Services: None. It is a community College

2 College Junior

Campus Resources: The people are good however, it is corrupt higher management.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since I tried to complain to the US Government and they told me that they give every school a certain amount every year for financial aid, HACC is screwing over their students. Way to go Pennsylvania. This is what happens when Republicans get a hold of finances. The poor work twice as hard and the poor pay twice.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wish they didn't stress the teachers so much and put them under the thumb. I also wish they would not spend MY grant money and leave me in debt. PCC in Oregon has their screws together. HACC does not.

College Junior

Overall Experience: Can't say yet. I am still playing catch-up since they didn't transfer all of my credits.

College Junior

Online Courses: I did online at Portland Community College and it was a hassle and a headache. I had to wait hours and hours just for a yes or no response.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The Student Body and Student Government really try to make it work. However, under poor management that is wasting students grant money from the US Government is screwing all of us over.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: The main problem I am seeing is that schools are not supporting teachers as much as they should. Teachers are scared that they will get fired and they are mostly adjunct. I also have a problem with how my school is using the financial aid that the government has given them for the year. According to the US Government, I should have received $5,500 in grant money. My school decided that I should only receive $2,300. They are making me go into debt unnecessarily and for credit that they chose not to transfer from my old school. I had 20 credits from my old school and 3 writing courses and they only chose to transfer the middle ranked class. I am pretty upset with them but I can't say more to them without risking expulsion since every financial aid counselor knows my name and case because the US department of education considers everyone under 24 still a child even though I haven't lived with my dad for over 5 years.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in my second term there. There is a lot offered. However, I knew kids that committed suicide because of the debt and it is stressful. Worrying about the money is harder than worrying about the classes and I am full time student with a part time job.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: It's easy to navigate and employees are very helpful.

5 College Senior

Student Body: I enjoy the team work and friendliness of fellow students.
