December 18, 2014, Jersey City, NJ – The time for current and new students to register for Winter Session and Spring Semester classes at Hudson County Community College (HCCC) is now.
Winter Session registration is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. now through December 23,2014, and also on Monday, January 5, 2015 at the College’s 70 Sip Avenue Administration Building in Jersey City and at the HCCC North Hudson Higher Education Center – Kennedy Boulevard at 49th Street in Union City.
Spring Semester registration is also open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. now through December 23,2014, and weekdays from January 5-26, 2015 at the Jersey City and Union City locations. Eligible students may also register online.
“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 Award.
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 https://www.hccc.edu/programs-courses/continuing-education/index.html.
