Program Benefits

  • Campus without Borders


    As a dually admitted student to HCCC and NJCU, we enthusiastically welcome you to New Jersey City University, Campus Without Borders®. Though NJCU technically spans approximately 40 acres, the opportunities to learn know no bounds. We invite you to consider the entire metropolitan area (including the HCCC campus) as your campus. Take what you learn in the classroom and travel to area museums, concerts, lectures and sporting venues and more. You will discover experiences that go well beyond what you thought a university experience could be.

    So while we encourage you to travel the entire metropolitan area, we will give you an academic passport to document your travels. Keep it with you throughout your years at HCCC and NJCU. Ask that it be stamped at all the places and events you attend both on and off the NJCU and HCCC campuses. Or bring proof of attendance to designated offices on either campus for a stamp. 

    If by the time of your NJCU graduation you have at least 100 stamps you will be eligible to wear a recognition cord with your cap and gown. Whether as part of a class assignment, an extra-curricular activity or as your own excursion, always think of Jersey City, Hudson County and New York City as part of your campuses. Absorb all you can while you are here and make a commitment to yourself that you will take every opportunity presented to gain the broadest of educational experiences. After all, our location is one of our greatest assets.
