The Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack.

HACKENSACK, N.J. – Bergen Community College will offer special Saturday registration hours at its Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center location at 355 Main Street this week. Students can visit Saturday, Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to register for the fall semester, which begins Sept. 5.

More than 14,000 students will enroll at Bergen, the state’s No. 1 institution for associate degree graduates, this fall.

At Bergen, students earn associate degrees and certificates in fields such as aviation, business administration, culinary arts, fashion design and nursing while studying under a renowned faculty – including a former U.S. Professor of the Year. Alumni have transferred to institutions such as Yale, the New Jersey Institute of Technology and the University of California, Berkeley.

The College maintains campus locations in Paramus (main), Hackensack (Philp Ciarco Jr. Learning Center) and Lyndhurst (Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands) while also offering online classes. Its main campus features facilities such as the Health Professions Integrated Teaching Center, the Emil Buehler Trust Observatory and Stryker Manufacturing Lab, which provide students with hands-on, practice-based learning opportunities. Day and evening classes take place throughout the week – including a “weekend college” program.

Bergen also offers numerous support services to help students remain enrolled and on a path for graduation. The College’s Cerullo Learning Assistance Center has twice earned honors as the top tutoring center in the country, while an on-campus food pantry and “career closet” target hidden challenges faced by many community college students.
