The admission process has the following steps.
Submission of online application form
College math/ English test
Additional documents (Some health programs have limited space and specific entrance requirements)
The college does not consider a student's SAT/ACT scores as eligibility for admission. As a result, there is no SAT/ACT range or average scores provided by the college.
SAT scores are an important component of a college application and are considered a good way to calibrate a potential candidate's grades. Since the SAT scores are not one of the mandatory requirements to get admission to Bergen Community College, there is no data about the average SAT score or similar requirements to take admission to the university.
Believed to make a candidate's application a strong one for getting admission to a particular college or a college of his/her choice, ACT scores play a huge role in the admission process. At Bergen Community College, candidates are provided with an option to submit their ACT scores to secure a seat. However, it must be noted that BCC does not put much emphasis on the same. Notably, no official data about the minimum requirements concerning the ACT scores has been made publicly available.

Many universities in the US incentivize students by helping them out to earn college credits by taking certain courses, which are available for them in high school. Here are the names of some of such popular programs: AP Credit, CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences), and Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit). As far as policy for these credits is concerned, each college has a different one. The advantages of such programs include a shorter time to get a degree, increased chances of completing a degree, and a higher GPA.
