• Here's What You Need to Do After You've Been Admitted... and Before You Register for Classes!

  • Once you’ve received a letter of acceptance from Hudson County Community College, you will need to take just a few more steps before registering for classes:

    1) Apply for Financial Aid (if applicable). Just complete the FAFSA application online at www.fafsa.ed.gov (HCCC’s code is 012954), or pick up a copy of the application at our Student Financial Assistance Office.

    2) Explore your options for scholarships. There are many opportunities for you!

    3) Take the College Placement Test - this is extremely important, since the results will be used to determine the level of Math and English courses you will be taking. The College Placement Test may also be used to determine eligibility for financial aid.

    See if you’re exempt from all or portions of the College Placement Test.

    4) If you speak English as a secondary language you may need to take the Level of English Proficiency (LOEP) Test, which will determine whether or not you need to take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Information on the LOEP is available by clicking here, or by phoning our Testing and Assessment Center at (201) 360-4190.

    5) Meet with an Academic Advisor who will help you make your educational decisions. The HCCC Center for Academic & Student Success Advisement & Counseling Services is located on both the Journal Square and North Hudson Higher Education Center campuses.

    6) Develop a class schedule. Make your choices by consulting the most current version of our course schedule and real-time schedule. 

    After you've completed the steps above, you're ready to register!
