The financial aid is ABSOLUTELY great there. And ever since President Obama changed the grueling process of financial aid eligibility. I basically go to school free!

    Harrisburg Area Community College is a wonderful school to start out at! It is also a very cheap option compared to any other school, including state schools. It's a cheaper option by far, but the quality education you receive is just as good as anywhere else if not better!

    HACC is great for recent graduates, adults seeking more education, and veterans. In my past 1.5 years of expereince, the professors are extremely helpful and nice. However, depending on the campus, they may lack certain services.

    A great school for someone looking for a second chance. Not the place for someone who has aspired for high academic goals their entire lifetime. But somewhere that would be good for someone with a few slipups.

    My brother goes here, my dad teaches part time here, and I will be going here soon. Of what I've seen and heard about this college it seems to be a great school to start out at. If you want to save some money or just didn't do the greatest in high school than go to HACC.

    A great college to start off with to start your college career. Accessible campus, where everything is out to the open. Great opportunities readily available. (Speaking from Lancaster Campus)

    Harrisburg Area Community College is a really nice place to be. It has a professional yet friendly environment, and the primary objective of all the employees is to help the students. This is definitely the place to attend if you're looking for a calm yet invigorating atmosphere and education.

    Harrisburg Area Community College is a great place to complete general education credits and save money. I have only taken four classes at the York campus so far, but all of my professors are good. The environment in York is somewhat decent, and I would recommend this school to others.

    I think the tuition is reasonable and appreciate the evening classes as I work full-time during the day. I have had pleasant experiences with the staff and offices, with one notable exception: the bookstore. Simply put, do NOT buy from the bookstore as it will cost you nothing but extra money and a whole lot of aggravation!

    HACC provides opportunity for great savings on an education. Even for those attending or planning to attend another college, GenEd courses taken here may be transferred, cutting down on overall tuition costs. Also, many of the professors are active in the fields they teach and can apply that knowledge to the classroom, creating an enthusiastic yet down-to-earth learning environment.
