Taking classes at HCCC means taking a step closer towards ultimate professional success. That journey starts today! If you can believe it, just five years ago I had no background in accounting and I did not know  what I wanted to do in my life. HCCC gave me the start I needed and with the guidance and support from professors, I eventually got my associate’s degree. Now it is 2020 and I just passed the CPA exam with a master’s degree in Accounting. Your dreams start at HCCC.

I intend to complete my 150 credits to sit for the CPA exam and to become a CPA by 2021. The knowledge I have gained from HCCC accounting program prepared me for Rutgers University and to secure a position at KPMG, May 2021. My experience in the Accounting program at HCCC is quite memorable and I hope to share my experiences with students who are interested in the accounting field.
