  • As you consider Hudson County Community College (HCCC), two words will come to mind: academic excellence. Offering a high-quality education is our top priority at HCCC. Two other words, however, will also come to mind as you explore HCCC: convenience and affordability. Our beautiful urban Journal Square campus (our main campus) is conveniently located in the heart of Hudson County, less than 20 minutes from New York City and the Newark Liberty International Airport, and is easily accessible via PATH, train or bus. Once you’re on campus, you’ll see how easy it is to get around. Our four satellite campuses are strategically located throughout Hudson County so no matter where you are, you have access to our campuses and programs.

    Attend college on your schedule.

    At HCCC, we make it easy for you to earn your certificate or degree by offering more than 300 daytime, evening and weekend credit and non-credit courses that fit your schedule and your budget. Our class sizes are small, with an average 18:1 student/teacher ratio for guaranteed individual attention. If coming to campus is difficult for you, we also offer online degree courses. Whatever your lifestyle demands, we’ll help you set up a schedule that works within your timeline, your budget and your life.

    Best of all, at HCCC, you can choose from more than 50 degree and certificate programs, including our flagship culinary and nursing programs. Many of our students choose to continue their education after graduation from HCCC; both Fairleigh Dickinson University and New Jersey City University accept transferring HCCC students to their four-year and Master’s degree programs, and both offer scholarship packages.
