Freeze applies to this year’s Summer and Fall semester sessions and 2021 Winter, Spring and First Summer sessions.
April 20, 2020, Jersey City, NJ –Hudson County Community College (HCCC) President Dr. Chris Reber announced that the College’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted to maintain the current cost of tuition and fees for the 2021 fiscal year with no increases.
“Our students are experiencing significant economic pressure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. All of us at HCCC are dedicated to doing everything we can to ensure their health and safety, and to assist them in realizing their academic goals,” stated HCCC Board Chair William J. Netchert, Esq.
The tuition and fees freeze will be in effect for the College’s 2020-21 academic year, which includes this year’s Summer II and Fall semester sessions, as well as the 2021 Winter, Spring and Summer I sessions.
The basic rate for in-county residents will remain at $149 per credit, the out-of-county rate at $298 per credit, and the out-of-state and international rate at $440 per credit. The present $25 per term registration fee, $6.50 per credit student activity fee, $25 per credit general service fee and $18 per credit technology fee will also remain level.
Dr. Reber noted that in early March, the College established a Coronavirus Task Force that meets regularly and coordinates with statewide, regional and local health and educational agencies. The Task Force communicates with students, faculty and staff about issues associated with COVID-19; implements precautionary measures to avoid contagion and spread of the virus; expands the use of online learning and virtual meetings; and secures services, programs and resources to address students’ needs beyond the classroom.
“We are grateful to our Trustees, faculty and staff for demonstrating their commitment to our students’ persistence and success in these challenging times by holding the line on tuition and fees, and by working tirelessly on our students’ and community’s behalf,” Dr. Reber said.
