Bucks County Community College, which has been attracting summer scholars for more than 50 years, is offering more than 300 credit courses this summer to help students catch up or get ahead.
Classes begin May 21, June 11, and July 2. Students can choose from face-to-face or online courses, or hybrid classes – a mix of both in-person and online learning. Face-to-classes are held at the Newtown Campus, the Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, and the Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in Bristol. Special in-person registration takes place May 16 and 21 on the Newtown campus.
Fundamentals such as algebra, biology, and English composition are available along with computer and information science, management, nursing, music, and much more. Guest students are welcome as most credits transfer back to their home college, allowing students to catch up, get ahead, or graduate sooner. Tuition is only $145 a credit this summer for Bucks County residents. A list of courses is available at www.bucks.edu/summer
In-person registration help is available from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 16 in the lobby of the Science Center, the newest building on the Newtown campus. A second in-person session will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, May 21, in the Registration Office, located in the lower level of the Linksz Pavilion.
