Transferring to a four-year college or university is a major goal of many HACC,  Central Pennsylvania's Community College students. HACC has highly transferable  courses and is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle  States Association of Colleges and Schools, a standard accrediting organization  for community and 4-year colleges.
Successful transfer requires careful  selection and planning so courses taken at HACC meet requirements of the  transfer institution. It is essential that students choose a transfer curriculum  and work with their advisor, using HACC's extensive transfer information, to  select required transfer courses. Transfer information includes transfer  checksheets, comprehensive transfer notebooks, course equivalencies, transfer  agreements, college directories, and catalogs. Transfer will be most efficient  when the student selects the specific college to which they wish to transfer.

A student can transfer at any time they apply to and are accepted by the  school to which they want to transfer. Some students prefer to stay at HACC for  the maximum amount of credits for reasons of cost, proximity, flexibility of  class availability, or simply preference. Other students may prefer to transfer  as soon as they can be accepted by another institution. There are a few majors,  such as a Music major, to which a student may need to transfer sooner in order  to have the full range of choices for efficient and timely completion of their  degree.

Credits accepted by HACC for coursework completed at other  institutions may not necessarily be accepted by the college to which you are  transferring. When a student applies for transfer, official transcripts will  need to be sent from each school previously attended. HACC decisions to transfer  credits in are HACC's alone. Each receiving institution makes independent  decisions based upon their criteria for awarding transfer  credits
