By following the rules outlined below, you may win $250 to apply to your HACC tuition, books and fees.

The Rules

    • Go to HACC’s collegewide Facebook and/or Twitter pages.
       
    • Locate and respond to the question about how you saved money by attending HACC. The question will include the hashtag: #HACCsavings.
       
    • Comment on the Facebook post or reply to the tweet and use the hashtag (#HACCsavings) in your response.
       
    • Respond one time only. Individuals may not respond more than once.
       
    • Be creative. Use photos and videos to share your response. Including a selfie photo or video is required to be entered into the drawing.
       
    • Share your response by 5 p.m. on Oct. 21.

  • All participants who follow the rules noted above will be eligible for the drawing for a $250 tuition giveaway. A tuition giveaway is free money that you can apply to your HACC tuition, fees and books for the spring and/or summer 2017 terms. Three $250 tuition giveaways will be awarded by Nov. 4, 2016.
     
  • The Office of College Advancement (OCA) team will draw three names out of a hat once the week is over. The chosen students will be invited to the Office of College Advancement (TL200) to get their photo taken. Students that are not able to travel from another campus will be asked to submit a photo with the tuition giveaway voucher. The photos will then be posted on social media to congratulate the current students.
     
  • You must be a current HACC student to be eligible for the drawing. A current HACC student is currently taking classes at any of the five campuses and/or Virtual Learning.
     
  • Examples of posts or tweets include:
     
    • I saved money at HACC through the scholarships I received. #HACCsavings
       
    • My #HACCsavings came from the different assistance programs at HACC. Thanks to them, I was able to buy my books.

  • Each tuition giveaway will only have one recipient and participants are limited to claiming one tuition giveaway only.
     
  • HACC reserves the right to remove any participants' posts, tweets or comments that are abusive or dishonest.
