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.

HACC to Relocate Trade, Technology Programs at Harrisburg Campus

HARRISBURG, Pa. – HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, will relocate the College’s trade and technology programs over the next four years from the Midtown area to other buildings on the Harrisburg Campus or other HACC campuses.
The relocation parallels the end of a 15-year lease at Midtown 2 at Third and Reily streets that expires June 30, 2022. The relocation may start as early as summer 2019 and be completed in phases by summer 2022.
“HACC will continue to offer a robust lineup of trade and technology programs designed to allow students to earn an associate degree to enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year institution or enhance their skills to move up in an existing field,” HACC President John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., said.
“No programs are being cut, and the transition will occur at times that have the least impact on classes,” Sygielski said.
“Furthermore, HACC remains strongly committed to the Midtown area with the College’s robust Workforce Development and Continuing Education and credit welding programs at Midtown 1 at Fourth and Reily streets,” Sygielski said.
By moving out of Midtown 2, which is the only leased space at the Harrisburg Campus, the College will save approximately $1.9 million annually in rent, maintenance and expenses. A portion of the savings initially will be used to renovate spaces for the relocated programs.
HACC signed a lease with Greenworks Development Corporation in July 2007 and began offering the College’s trade and technology programs in the former Evangelical Press Building the following month.
