HACC Application for Tuition Payment

Application for Tuition Payment

Certificates of Residency are issued to eligible Lower Dauphin residents for attendance at HACC and reduce the student’s tuition rate. They are issued for a period of one year and follow the school year of July 1 through June 30. Each July 1 you will need to obtain a new Certificate if you are enrolling for new classes at HACC. You cannot obtain your new Certificate prior to July 1. Applications are made available on the Lower Dauphin website in July.      

To apply for a Certificate of Residence for attendance at HACC a student must first register with the college and obtain a Student ID. After obtaining a Student ID, an Application must be completed with Lower Dauphin School District certifying that you meet all of the following eligibility requirements:

  1. Residency in the Lower Dauphin School District on July 1 – mandatory.
  2. Residency in Lower Dauphin for the past year OR moved in from a sponsoring school district for a total combined, consecutive residency of at least 12 months.
  3. Acceptance in an approved on-campus program at HACC.

You may be asked to prove your eligibility by providing documents including, but not limited to, driver’s license, rental agreement, and/or payroll address verification. If your address on file with HACC differs from the address on your Application, your Application may be denied or delayed.

Due to changes implemented by HACC, paper Certificates are no longer issued. The School District will file your Certificate electronically via file upload directly to HACC’s website once your Application has been received and processed.

The fastest way to file your Application and obtain your electronic Certificate is to apply online. To do so, please open the Word document below and complete the form, saving it to your computer using your HACC student ID number as the file name. Do not submit an Application if you do not meet the residency requirements.
