ACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, (HACC) is a community college in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. HACC is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. HACC serves 17,000 degree-seeking students, as well as more than 8,300 remedial and workforce development students.[1] The College has more than 100,000 alumni.[2]

HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, became the first community college in Pennsylvania on Feb. 14, 1964. HACC is the largest community college in Pennsylvania and serves students at its Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York campuses.

In 2005, Harrisburg Area Community College adopted the name HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College. While Harrisburg Area Community College remains the College’s full legal name, the College registered the legal alias “HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College”, in 2007 and began using that name almost exclusively.[8]
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, is a leading employer and educator in the region. Central Pennsylvania would be unrecognizable without the many benefits HACC provides.

Investments in HACC’s students and employees multiply over the course of their careers. Approximately 80% of HACC alumni stay within a 25-mile radius of their home campus, continuing their positive impact on the regional economy.
HACC has developed partnerships with companies to build their employees’ skills and offer apprenticeship programs so that students can receive on-the-job training while attending classes. For example, HACC is proud to be the first community college in Pennsylvania to provide an apprenticeship program in advanced manufacturing.
