College Catalog  

The Hudson County Community College Catalog is an information and reference guide on College policies, facilities, degree and certificate programs, course offerings, services, and personnel. Information in this catalog is subject to change as a result of new or revised curricula, laws, policies, or regulations. Since the statements contained in the catalog are for informational purposes only, it should not be considered the basis of a contract between the College and the student. Though the College Catalog is produced as a reference guide, each student is responsible for keeping apprised of current requirements for graduation for a particular degree or certificate program.

Student Handbook 

The Hudson County Community College Student Handbook provides you with valuable information about the people, programs, and services that support the academic, personal, and professional development of all HCCC students. The handbook also introduces you to or reminds you of, our College community standards.

Students are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the information in the syllabus they receive for each course. See the Syllabus Addendum for more information.
