On Nov. 15, 2012, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education issued a warning to HACC regarding the College’s performance on three of the Commission’s 14 standards for accreditation. Since then, the College has been diligently working to correct the issues identified in the warning.
While on warning, HACC remains accedited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. (267-284-5000) There is no negative impact on the following factors:
- The quality of HACC’s academic programs and courses is excellent. We received the warning because we need to provide additional research and reports to demonstrate the high quality of the education HACC provides.
- Financial aid will not be impacted.
- HACC is accredited and will remain accredited.
- HACC degrees, certificates and diplomas will remain valuable when transferring to a four-year institution or entering the workforce.
HACC has every expectation of resolving the areas of concern that resulted in the College being placed on warning status by Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. (267-284-5000)
The College has a Sept. 1, 2013, deadline to prove that it has achieved compliance and can sustain compliance in the three standards.
