College representatives also will be on hand to explain the ESL program, as well as enrollment and financial aid. Students who have completed ESL classes will be available to offer their experience. Advisers will answer questions or can help with next steps.
A variety of HACC program and general education required courses are offered in Chambersburg for the majority of the college's nearly 200 credit, two-year associate and transfer degrees, certificates and diplomas to prepare graduates with the education and skills needed to compete in today's workforce.
