After you are admitted to HCCC, you may need to take the College Placement Test (CPT) to make sure you sign up for the right classes. This test will also show if you need to take extra classes in reading, writing and mathematics before moving on to college-level classes. Keep in mind that you may not need to take the test if you meet certain guidelines.

The state of New Jersey requires that we ask all students who are enrolled full-time (12 credit hours or more) to provide proof of measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B immunizations. All students, regardless if they are full-time or part-time, must provide proof of meningococcal meningitis immunization, unless they are exempt. Students can provide evidence that they are exempt because of the following reasons:

  • Medical reasons (such as pregnancy or immunity): Show a physician's statement or official record.
  • Religious reasons: Show a statement from an official of the religious organization.
  • Anyone born before January 1, 1957: Still must provide proof of hepatitis B immunization. 

We accept the following as evidence of immunization:

  • An official school immunization record.
  • A record from any public health department or physician.

You have many ways to pay for college. Some of them are based on your financial need, although others are based on your grades, interests or skills.

You could be eligible for grants or scholarships from the government or from HCCC. Financial aid is also available in the form of federal and state loans and grants, such as Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, state Tuition Aid Grants, Federal Work-Study and the Educational Opportunity Fund.

The financial aid application process is confidential and free. The first step in receiving a loan or grant is to apply and file a Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA).

Eligible students may qualify for a scholarship at HCCC or from an external source.
