It’s a new year and the perfect time to go forward at Passaic County Community College. PCCC has locations in Paterson,, Wanaque, Passaic, and Wayne, and also offers the programs and classes to help you build a secure foundation for future success. Choose from over 70 degree and certificate programs in a wide range of fields, including computers, science, healthcare, education, public safety, and much more. 

Some of today’s highest paying careers are in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields, and PCCC’s STEM department has the dedicated faculty and cutting-edge facilities to offer students a strong start toward a rewarding career. STEM students interested in avionics can gain experience on the flight simulators in our STEM Makerspace, which offers hands-on experience in multiple STEM areas. PCCC's STEM Department has also enabled many students to land valuable internships with NASA and within the National Science Foundation. 

PCCC offers affordable tuition, financial aid, and many cost-saving options. If your annual income is $65,000 or less, you may qualify for a Community College Opportunity Grant (CCOG) and attend PCCC tuition-free.  Plus, grant-funded classes, scholarships, and other aid can all add up to a low-cost or even tuition-free college education.
