HACC Residency



POLICY 912.1

  1. Purpose
    1. The Board recognizes the Community College Program as an adjunct educational opportunity for eligible residents of the District. Under the terms of the Sponsorship Agreement between the Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) and the Susquehanna Township School District, the School District subsidizes a portion of HACC's operating costs and capital expenses.

  2. Guidelines
    1. There is no waiting period to qualify for District tuition benefits for persons moving here from another sponsoring district in Perry, Dauphin, and Cumberland Counties, provided they have met that district's residency requirements.

    2. Each sponsoring district will be responsible for subsidizing eligible persons residing in that district on July 1. A person moving from one sponsoring district to another after July 1 will remain the responsibility of the original district for that fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).

    3. Persons who move into the Susquehanna Township School District from a non-sponsoring district must reside here for a period of six (6) months prior to enrollment at HACC and must be a U.S. citizen to qualify for residency tuition rate.

    4. A certificate of residency will be valid only during the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) in which they are issued. There will be no retroactive certification after the close of any semester.

    5. Persons liable for and delinquent in payment of per capita or occupation taxes shall not be eligible for a certificate of residency.

    6. To be eligible, a person's high school class must be graduated or the person granted early admission in accordance with the District's early admission policy.

Early Admission:

The District will assume responsibility for one-third of the tuition beginning with the fall semester immediately following completion of the pupil's junior year of high school for any pupil who meets the residency requirements and has been granted early admission to Harrisburg Area Community College as a full-time student under provisions of Chapter 7, Section 145, Regulations of the State Board of Education.
