• Registering at Hudson County Community College

    HCCC is an open-admissions institution, which means that anyone with a high-school diploma, and anyone who is 18 years of age or older and does not hold a high school diploma, is eligible to be admitted here.

    Registration is an easy, but multi-step process that includes applying for admission and then being evaluated and advised about classes and coursework.

    The College provides various opportunities each semester to register for classes. How you go about registering is determined by your current enrollment status.

    Priority Registration — or early registration — is for returning students, as well as for new students. Please check the current schedule for dates. Registering early is the best way to make sure you get the classes you want.

    Late Registration is also for returning and new students. Please be aware that during Late Registration, fewer classes may be available (particularly at certain times), and returning students are charged an additional fee.

    Students may add and/or drop a class without incurring an academic or tuition penalty prior to the first day of class. Once classes begin, an Add/Drop fee will be charged for each instance where a student makes an adjustment to his/her schedule. Following the Add/Drop Period, which is posted in the Schedule of Course Offerings (SoCO), students may withdraw from classes, which will result in a grade of “W” and may result in a refund based on the Tuition Refund schedule. The Tuition Refund schedule is available through the Bursar’s Office and is posted in the SoCO.

    If you wish to drop a course but do not submit the Add/Drop Form, you will continue to be registered in the course, may receive an “F” grade, and will be held financially responsible for the course. Non-attendance does not constitute a drop or a withdrawal from classes. Classes/Sections may not be switched after the Add/Drop period.

    Adding, dropping and withdrawals from classes (W) may alter financial aid awards; students with awards may want to seek counsel from Financial Aid prior to adjusting their schedules.

    The Add/Drop Form is available here.
