     HACC Students Certificate of Residency Process: For students who will be attending HACC after high school graduation, below are the steps to obtain a Certificate of Residency:

    • The contact person is Mrs. Laura Wilkins.
    • The process can be handled via email.  The student (or parent) should email Mrs. Wilkins at requesting a Certificate of Residency and provide HACC ID and date of birth.
      • If preferred, you may also call 717-775-5951 to provide the same information.
    • Once the ID and date of birth have been received, the certificate will be submitted electronically.   It generally takes HACC 24 hours to process.

    A Certificate of Residency is not required for current high school students in dual enrollment with HACC.
