April 24, 2018, Jersey City, NJ – The advantages of attending college open houses include making connections to help map one’s higher education and professional goals, free tours, and waived application fees.


Hudson County Community College will hold an Open House on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with check-in beginning at 9:30 a.m. The event will be held at the College’s Culinary Conference Center – 161 Newkirk St. in Jersey City, NJ – just two blocks from the Journal Square PATH Transportation Center. Attendees will be able to experience the Hudson County Community College campus culture and meet with the educators, students, and administrators.


Activities are planned to help acquaint prospective students with the College’s two campuses, academic programs, and the services and programs available to HCCC students. The April 28 Open House attendees will be able to obtain information on the College’s degree and certificate programs, including the acclaimed STEM, Nursing, Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management, Criminal Justice, Business, and other course offerings. Attendees may also tour the Journal Square Campus.


Additionally, representatives from the College’s award-winning student support services team will provide information on how the team assists HCCC students in reaching their academic and career goals.


HCCC students pay a fraction of the cost of tuition at a four-year college or university, and the college has one of the most successful financial aid and scholarship programs in New Jersey, with about 83% of HCCC students receiving assistance. Open House attendees will learn about the application and acceptance processes, and members of the Financial Aid department will assist in setting up FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) accounts. As a bonus, the $25 application fee will be waived for prospective students who attend the Open House and apply to HCCC that day.
