Hudson County Community College (HCCC) celebrates the opening of its new Secaucus Center, located on the Hudson County Schools of Technology Frank A. Gargiulo campus, at One High Tech Way. The center’s offerings include required courses in all HCCC majors. Further, two full-degree programs – Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts (General) and Associate in Science in Business Administration – will be offered in their entirety at the Secaucus Center.
Classes are offered in weekday evening sessions, during which an HCCC Student Success Coach is available to assist with degree planning, financial aid and scholarship applications, and transfer/career planning.
According to HCCC President Dr. Chris Reber, “Our Middle States-approved Secaucus Center focuses on expanding opportunities. It will serve all of Hudson County – especially those who live or work in Secaucus, Kearny, Harrison, and East Newark – with full-credit, college-degree programs offered in the evening. In addition, we are also providing High Tech High School students interested in STEM education with the opportunity to complete an HCCC associate degree upon high school graduation.”
“The partnership between Hudson County Schools of Technology and Hudson County Community College aligns with our district’s mission to provide students of all ages with diverse learning opportunities,” said Hudson County Schools of Technology Superintendent Amy Lin-Rodriguez. “By working collaboratively, our current high school students are able to earn an associate degree from HCCC upon graduation, and we are able to expand our post-secondary offerings. I thank County Executive Tom DeGise for continuing to invest in public education, allowing everyone to further their studies and prepare for future career opportunities.”
“As a former educator, I appreciate the value of this partnership between Hudson County Community College and Hudson County Schools of Technology for our residents, and for the continued economic growth and development of the County,” said Hudson County Executive Thomas A. DeGise.
