The agreement guarantees that HCCC students who meet certain criteria have a reserved placed in the NJCU criminal justice bachelor’s degree program. They may transfer up to 60 credits from HCCC toward a bachelor of science in criminal justice, entering NJCU as fully-matriculated students in junior standing.
A minimum of 39 credits in criminal justice are taken at NJCU to complete the degree requirements.
“Hudson County Community College has long been a valued partner of our university and both institutions share a similar educational mission in our community. This articulation agreement further strengthens our partnership,” Dr. Sue Henderson said, NJCU president. “Last year, transfers from HCCC received degrees in 24 different academic disciplines and our nationally-ranked criminal justice program was among the most sought-after degree.”
The new agreement provides HCCC students with access to NJCU financial aid counselors who can assist them with early financial planning, providing estimates of financial aid and offering scholarships.
