Fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the College offers courses and classes in a wide variety of disciplines to the people and businesses of Hudson County, one of the most historic and ethnically diverse areas of the United States. HCCC was recognized with the 2012 Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Northeast Regional Equity Award, was one of just five finalists for the American Association of Community Colleges’ (AACC) Student Success Award, and was presented with a series of New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s Good Neighbor Awards: 2009 for the Culinary Conference Center, 2012 for the North Hudson Campus, and 2015 for the award-winning Gabert Library. In 2017, the College acquired the CarePoint School of Nursing (formerly Christ Hospital School of Nursing) and has since transitioned it to the fully-accredited HCCC School of Nursing, with its students performing among the highest in New Jersey on their NCLEX exams. In 2019, the College joined Achieving the Dream as part of its expanding efforts towards continuous improvement in its student success work.
