College Overview

Hudson County Community College (HCCC) is an award-winning, comprehensive urban college with three campuses located just minutes from Manhattan in Jersey City, Secaucus, and Union City, New Jersey.

Fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the College offers courses and classes in a wide variety of disciplines to the people and businesses of Hudson County, one of the most historic and ethnically diverse areas of the United States. HCCC was recognized with the 2012 Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Northeast Regional Equity Award, was one of just five finalists for the American Association of Community Colleges’ (AACC) Student Success Award, and was presented with a series of New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s Good Neighbor Awards: 2009 for the Culinary Conference Center, 2012 for the North Hudson Campus, and 2015 for the award-winning Gabert Library.
