HCC announces Take2! program to help students complete degrees

(June 1, 2020) – The Hagerstown Community College Foundation has announced a new program, called Take2!, which is designed to help eligible local residents complete an associate degree, free of charge, after previously starting at a four-year college and not finishing.

Through the program, residents of Washington County and border counties in Pennsylvania and West Virginia will have the opportunity to complete an associate degree within one year at no cost for tuition and fees. Students must commit to attend HCC full-time, beginning in the fall of 2020.

To be eligible for Take2! funding, each student must have earned a minimum of 24 college-level credits at an accredited four-year college(s) with minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.5. In addition, students must have completed the 2020-2021 FAFSA and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $10,000 or less. This agreement is a last-dollar contribution, which means that federal and state financial grant aid and scholarships must be used prior to Take2! funds.

The deadline to apply is August 1, 2020. Eligibility and program requirements may be made by the HCC Take2! Review Committee on individual bases and with the support of the assigned academic advisor. To learn more, visit
