  • Will my credits from HCCC transfer?

  • Under New Jersey law, students completing an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science at Hudson County Community College - or any of the state’s 19 community colleges - are guaranteed full-junior status upon acceptance to all of New Jersey's state colleges or universities.

    Additionally, the College has articulation agreements with many other four-year institutions from all over New Jersey (e.g., Bloomfield College, Caldwell University, Centenary College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Saint Peter's University, etc.) and the U.S. These agreements guarantee that if a student graduates in a specific program with a predetermined GPA (grade point average) and has followed a prescribed course of study, he/she will be guaranteed junior status and the same rights as those students who originally began their studies at that four-year school.

    The following four-year colleges and universities have specialized articulation agreements with HCCC, and have agreed to accept most - if not all - of the credits from a specific HCCC academic program upon completion of an appropriate Associate degree: Baltimore International College - Culinary & Hospitality Management; Fairleigh Dickinson University - Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management, All Programs; Felician College - Nursing (Bachelor’s or Master’s); Florida International University - Hospitality Management; Hawaii Pacific University - Culinary Arts; John Jay College of Criminal Justice (Criminal Justice (BA or BS); Laboratory Institute of Merchandising - Business Management; Mercer County Community College - Funeral Services; Metropolitan College of New York - Human Services; New England Culinary Institute - Culinary Arts; Paul Smith’s College - Culinary Arts and Service Management; Rutgers University-Newark - Social Work; and Wagner College - Nursing.

    Did you know? Transfer students who have earned their Associate degrees have a better chance of being admitted to four-year colleges and universities because possessing an Associate degree demonstrates a high level of commitment and dedication!

    HCCC regularly holds workshops to familiarize students with the transfer process. We recommend students attend a workshop and consult with our Transfer advisors during their very first semester of taking college-level courses
