Community College May Save Students 25 Percent on Higher Ed
Justin Landes didn’t initially choose
HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College. However, after a financial aid issue at a four-year institution and joining the
National Guard, he discovered HACC and “was set on applying.” The
tuition for a full-time student at HACC is approximately 25 percent less than the average full-time tuition at nearby four-year institutions.
Community Colleges Offer Free Classes to Inmates through Grant
A partnership between two community colleges, county courts and the
Workforce Board Lehigh Valley was recently announced. Funded through a $988,000 state grant, participants - who can be incarcerated or on probation -
will be offered tuition-free classes or vocational training through
Lehigh Carbon Community College or
Northampton Community College.
