HACC President John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., and Wilson College President Barbara K. Mistick, D.M., will renew an articulation agreement that will help HACC students transfer their credits to Wilson College. The agreement applies to all Associate in Arts and Associate in Science programs and replaces an original agreement between the two colleges signed in 2005.
The revised agreement also supports HACC students who know early on that they plan to transfer to Wilson College after completing their associate degree at HACC. As part of HACC’s dual admission agreement with Wilson College, students who indicate their interest in Wilson College before completing their 30th credit at HACC will have the Wilson College application fee waived. These students will be guaranteed admission upon completion of their associate degree from HACC and will be connected with Wilson College’s advising resources while they complete their HACC degree.
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, is the first and largest of Pennsylvania’s 14 community colleges. HACC offers over 100 career and transfer associate degree, certificate and diploma programs to approximately 19,000 students. Also, the College serves students at its Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York campuses; through virtual learning; and via workforce development and continuing education training.
