Putting a Face on Philanthropy
In an initiative to give Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) students greater access to completing a four-year degree at Albright College, the two educational institutions recently signed a dual admission agreement.
Under the agreement, students who earn their associate
degree at HACC are assured a place at Albright to complete their bachelor's
degree, provided they maintain a 2.0 grade point average.
Albright President Henry A. Zimon, Ph.D., said,
"The high quality of the HACC associate degree is an ideal springboard
to the Albright bachelor's degree and we welcome HACC students in both
our traditional four-year program and our Accelerated Degree Completion
Program. We look forward to a continuing collaboration with Harrisburg
Area Community College."
"This program is an excellent example of how
higher education institutions can work together effectively for the direct
benefit of our students," said HACC President Dr. Edna V. Baehre.
"HACC's agreement with Albright expands our current partnership whereby
our students can enter an Accelerated Degree Completion Program through
Albright right here in Harrisburg and in Lancaster."
The agreement enables students to apply to both
institutions simultaneously, as early as their senior year of high school.
Students in the program can take advantage of financial aid opportunities
at both institutions, and will have access to academic and career advising
services as well as library resources and campus facilities at all locations
of HACC and at Albright.
