Throughout the six semesters I spent at Passaic County Community College, I had a great experience and would definitely go back to take classes if I ever needed to. Students and professors alike were both very understanding and always willing to lend a helping hand. I did have quite a few issues with the registrar's office and financial aid department, but the positive experience I had greatly outweighs the negative. I am thankful for all of the friends I made there and would definitely recommend that any student to go there!

Overall, Passaic County Community College is a great outstanding path for students who just graduated from their local highschool. It offers so many opportunities and really gets the student thinking into what major they really wanna pursue. You can test the waters here and if you later decide to change your major, it will come to a more reasonable price than a 4 year college/university where it'll cost you dramastically. You learn so much here and it's even better with study groups. It truly is the best place to be at.
Passaic County Community College is an excellent school. This school offers excellent summer programs. Not only that, Passaic County Community College is one of the top schools that is in partnership with Nasa. Every year they send some incoming freshmans for a 10 week internship in Nasa. The teachers and students in PCCC all like to lend a helping hand whether it is for financial problems, schedules for semesters
