This Guide contains general information about the Academic Foundations English program at Hudson County Community College


Welcome to the Academic Foundations English LibGuide!

Academic Foundations (AF) offers classes in basic math, algebra and English to assist students in learning the skills that will provide the foundation for their future college work success. Qualified instructors treat students with the respect they deserve as adults in college and create motivating classroom environments. Classes are designed to meet the particular academic needs of each student. Ultimately, the goal is to give students the academic stronghold they need to succeed in college-level courses.

Upon entering the college, each student takes college placement tests in reading, writing, and math. Using the AF placement matrix, students’ reading and writing scores are used to place them in English 101 or in any of the three levels of Basic English. Some students may be evaluated further to determine if ESL courses are better suited to them. Students will complete their AF requirements only in the needed subject areas.

On this LibGuide you'll find information about classes, faculty, resources, contests, and more!
