Bergen’s summer classes begin in May.

PARAMUS, N.J – Bergen Community College will once again offer a full slate of summer classes beginning in May, providing students with an opportunity to take courses between the spring and fall semesters. Bergen’s summer schedule also includes the Kids and Teens Summer Learning Academy designed for first through twelfth graders that offers enrichment classes in areas such as STEM, SAT prep and the visual and performing arts.

The summer college schedule – ideal for students home from four-year institutions and those seeking to accelerate their graduation – features multiple options and start dates. Sessions range from six- to-twelve weeks, with the first beginning on Monday, May 20. All schedules include many general education courses that transfer to colleges across the country. Students from other colleges seeking to enroll at Bergen for summer classes should visit Bergen.edu/visiting.

Registration has also opened for Bergen’s fall classes, which begin in September. With three start dates offered for both in-person and Center for Online Learning classes, students have the flexibility to register for the session that best meets their needs.

Prospective students should consider filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applying for financial aid helps students unlock additional tuition assistance programs that can even make Bergen tuition-free. By filing a FAFSA, students become eligible for many of the programs, including the state’s Community College Opportunity Grant, which provides a tuition-free Bergen experience for many students.

Online registration for summer and fall classes will open on Monday, April 1. In-person registration will take place at the College’s three locations in Paramus (400 Paramus Road), Hackensack (355 Main Street) and Lyndhurst (1280 Wall Street West). For more information, visit Bergen.edu or attend the Thursday, April 18 new student open house from 3 to 6 p.m. at College’s main campus. RSVP at openhouse.bergen.edu.

Meanwhile, kids and teens classes begin on Monday, July 1 and continue through Friday, August 9, with all sessions taking place at the College’s Paramus main campus at 400 Paramus Road. Flexible offerings include single day, full-week, morning- and afternoon-only and full-day sessions on topics such as entrepreneurship, law and avionics. Parents can also enroll their children in optional before- and after-care programs as part of the summer program. Registration remains open at Bergen.edu/kidsandteens.
