HACC Gives Away Money for Tuition During Takin’ It to the Streets

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Looking to give future students a taste of college life, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, is taking its show on the road this summer and giving away money for future students to apply to their tuition and fees at HACC.

As part of its Takin’ It to the Streets campaign, HACC is making five local “tour stops” at community events and organizations, including the East Shore Area Library in Harrisburg, Pa. and Tech Centro in Lancaster, Pa.

Thanks to the HACC Foundation, two $500 tuition giveaways will be available for individuals to win at each of the five locations. The $500 may be used for tuition and fees at HACC during fall 2015 and/or spring 2016 terms.

As future students visit each location, they can enter to win the tuition giveaway, connect with a HACC recruiter, find out how to get started in a particular program or career path and learn about student life at the College’s five campuses. HACC staff will be on hand to answer questions about enrollment, financial aid, scholarships and degree plans.

Though, if future students visit HACC at the East Shore Area Library and Tec Centro, they can complete the entire enrollment process that day, including the completion of the application, placement test and FAFSA form; meeting with an advisor to review test scores and choosing and registering for classes.

The list of the five stops is available below. Please visit hacc.edu/Streets for full details and to register for the event.
