“Hudson County Community College is one of the best educational values
anywhere,” said HCCC President Dr. Glen Gabert. The College, which is fully accredited,
presently offers 51 degree programs and 14 certificate programs,
including Allied Health, Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management. Transfer
agreements are in position with every major college and university in New
Jersey. HCCC has a unique
program with Saint Peter’s
University that allows HCCC graduates to transfer to Saint Peter’s University
for the same tuition as they would pay at a New Jersey State four-year
institution – a very large savings for HCCC graduates.
HCCC students can save thousands of dollars on college
tuition while earning a professional certificate, or an Associate’s degree with
credits that will transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The
College’s Financial Aid staff is very knowledgeable, and more than 90% of HCCC
students receive financial aid and/or scholarships.
Dr. Gabert said HCCC students benefit from smaller class sizes
and more personalized attention than they might be afforded at other colleges,
in more than one dozen state-of-the-art buildings (like the College’s new
Library Building on Sip Avenue in Jersey City) that are outfitted with up-to-the-minute
technologies and amenities. HCCC students may study at times that are best for
them as the College offers morning and evening weekday classes, as well as
weekend classes, on the Journal Square Campus and North Hudson Higher Education
Center in Union City, and online sessions.
The College’s primary focus is student success, and the multifaceted HCCC
“First Year Experience” program guides students from application through
graduation. HCCC also has a Student Success program which assists students in
acquiring the skills and perspective needed to simultaneously succeed in
college and prepare for careers; it is one of just five programs in the U.S. to
be recognized with a national award from the American Association of Community
Colleges. Last Spring, the National
Tutoring Association (NTA) awarded the College’s Abegail Douglas-Johnson
Academic Support Services Department with the 2014 NTA Excellence in Tutoring
Hudson County Community College
also offers more than 145 noncredit classes through the College’s Division of
Community Education. There are a wide variety of professional and career
development, business, entrepreneurial, personal enrichment, ESL, and youth
classes offered in-person and online, and the catalog is available at http://www.hccc.edu/communityeducation/.
