PATERSON, NJ - With classes starting in just a couple weeks Passaic County Community College (PCCC) officials are reminding all new, current, and returning students that there is still time to register for the fall semester. 

PCCC offices on their Paterson, Wanaque, and Passaic campuses will be open this Saturday, August 24, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Calling it "Super Saturday" staff will be on hand to assist with registration, financial aid, payment plans, and any other issues students or prospective students need information about.

With over 70 degree and certificate programs in today’s top career fields to choose from, PCCC has one of the most affordable tuition rates in the state as well as financial aid options that include federal and state aid, flexible payment plans, scholarships, and paid internships, school officials said.
