Being at PCCC gets the job done. If you're unsure of where to go for college and you live in Passaic County, it will save you some money, rather than going to a community college not in your county, or enrolling in a 4-year institute unsure of your academic major. PCCC can improve by giving more information and direction to enrolling students on how to go about finding the right major, or taking the right courses to ensure the student has the correct guidelines and directions to follow as they maneuver there way through community college.

Attending to Passaic County Community College has been a magnificent experience. What I enjoyed the most and that help me complete all my courses, is they provide an academic plan. You meet up with an advisor to plan the next two years in college. This helps you to be more organize and not feel lost. Since entering college can be frightening. Just like a my college, it also has its flaws, Passaic County Community College needs to improve more in their propaganda. The academic plan, is really helpful but unfortunately not a lot of students are aware. They need to work more on making sure every student is aware of all the opportunities this college provides.
Very efficient administration, students very helpful.
I am a transfer student and staff was very helpful with my process of transitioning to a smaller school. I look forward to continuing my education on a smaller scale.
