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.

Attending PCCC has been great so far. Every one is helpful. Parking is easy. The book store is down stairs. Getting lunch is convenient. I'm in love ! I should've attended college 15 years ago, better later than never. I'll graduate PCCC before my daughter graduates high school. Team Leading by example- Practice what you preach!
Upon arrival Passaic County Community College is a big campus.My first time visiting I wasn't aware of where anything was located.Their were many Security Guards that were eager to help. Its a long process to get enrolled but with assistance I was able to get the help I needed. Their were counselors that you can talk to so that they can help you get the right courses you need. I like this school because you have the opportunity to get everything done in one day. You can enroll and Register for classes and also get help on financial aid so that you can be all set for when classes start.
