HACC Increases On-Campus Class Offerings for Fall 2021 Semester
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, will extend its mostly remote online instruction and student services through the fall 2021 semester. However, as a result of the decline of COVID-19 cases, HACC’s reported cases of COVID-19 remaining low, the state’s heightened vaccination plan and the announced ease of mitigation restrictions, the College will increase the number of approved on-campus classes offered and bring select student services back to campus by appointment.
