HACC is home to approximately 150 student visa holders from over 50 countries.
F-1 international student visa holders are admitted to the U.S. to be full-time students. They add a rich diversity to the College and are instrumental in promoting global awareness, responsibility, intercultural understanding, and engagement among students, faculty, and staff. They bring a great economic benefit to our country. It is calculated that HACC international students alone bring $3.4 million per year to the region and support 17 local jobs. These students are governed by strict regulations and are monitored by the Department of Homeland Security. They are required by federal regulation to maintain a full-time course load and make satisfactory progress in a degree or certificate program.
