BCCC offers online Winter Session

College students can make the most of winter break – and save a tidy sum on tuition – by earning up to eight credits in just four weeks during Winter Session at Bucks County Community College.

Registration is underway for online classes beginning Friday, Dec. 14 and ending Friday, Jan. 11.

Bucks is one of the few colleges in the region offering the highly concentrated academic term. There are 51 courses offered with 69 total sections, including Introductory Accounting, Basic Human Anatomy, Effective Speaking, U.S. History, English Composition I and many more.

All courses are offered completely online, allowing students to study from home, or from wherever they are spending their winter break. What’s more, credits transfer to most four-year colleges and universities, enabling students to work toward their degrees at a lower tuition rate – $150 a credit for Bucks County residents – and transfer credits back to their home school. Students with a satisfactory academic standing can take up to eight credits during Winter Session.

Students can look up courses and register online at bucks.edu/winter.

Walk-in registration is available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Dec. 13 at the Newtown Campus located at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown; the Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks at 1304 Veterans Highway, Bristol; and the Upper Bucks Campus at One Hillendale Road, Perkasie.

In-person registration sessions are also scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, Dec. 11 and 13, in the Registration Office, located in the lower level of the Linksz Pavilion on the Newtown Campus. Registration must be completed by Thursday, Dec. 13, and payment is due in full at time of registration.
