In the 1960s, community members of Bergen County, New Jersey, worked to establish a higher learning facility to serve the needs of local students. In 1965, Bergen Community College was officially established and construction began. The first students enrolled in the fall of 1968. Since its founding, Bergen Community College continues to accommodate growing educational needs of the region. Today, Bergen Community College maintains the main campus at Paramus, along with additional branches at Hackensack and Lyndhurst.
Bergen Community College awards associate’s degrees and certificate programs. The associate's degrees provide students with the opportunity to transfer into four-year institutions. In order to meet the needs of students with multiple demands and time constraints, Bergen Community College offers distance learning. Classes are conducted online or through a hybrid format, and students have access to support services, such as online tutoring and the online library database. All classes meet the same standards as on-campus counterparts. Online classes feature asynchronous learning complete with tests, writing assignments, reading, discussions and other homework. At times, students may be required to complete proctored exams. Bergen Community College also offers complete online degree and certificate programs.
