CollegeNOW is an educational opportunity for students to receive an associate's degree through Hudson County Community College while completing their high school courses.
A CollegeNOW invitation is emailed to students in April. Directions to apply to HCCC's Project LEAP program are included with the invitation. The deadline to respond is May 30th.
To make sure the program is accessible to everyone, CollegeNOW does not have prerequisites. All motivated students are welcome to apply!
Students choose from three curriculum concentrations, known as meta-majors, to focus their fields of study. They can choose from Liberal Arts, Business, and Math & Science meta-majors.
Students can earn up to 60 credits with the program, which equals about 2 years of college time saved!
All NJ state 4-year colleges and universities must accept NJ Community College credits according to the 2007 NJ year, "Full Faith in Credit."
Articulation agreements also exist with these following schools:
The credit transfer is done through the HCCC Bursar's Office. It is the student's responsibility to request, pay for, and verify the transfer of credits to the college of their choice.
The classes will differ depending on the meta-major you choose, but all students are required to take the following courses: College Student Success Course, Computer Applications, Speech, College Composition I, Intro to Literature, Intro to Psychology, and Culture & Values.
With the college credits you earn while at Marist, you will be able to start your college career as a junior, saving you time and money.
You will also attend career fairs, have access to some of the HCCC facilities, have a pathway to the Harvard Business School, and be able to earn scholarship opportunities for future endeavors.
If you decide you are no longer interested in the program, you may continue the regular college preparatory program the following school year.
