SPECIAL NOTE: Bucks County Community College, in support of those who have served our country, will grant Veteran Students early priority registration.  At Bucks, this means that Veteran Students who have been approved for this program, have no outstanding obligations, and have met all academic advising obligations, will be allowed to register online or in person as early as March 26, 2015.  This date will be listed in the "Priority Registration" email sent to the Bucks student email account of all approved Veteran Students.  To view the complete policy, please click here.

You may register during this period if...

  • Your Registration Form is signed by an academic advisor or your advisor enters a web-registration advising code for you (now mandatory for ALL students).
  • You have the required number of completed credits on the day you attempt to register (see chart below).
  • You have done your Placement Testing (or have been granted waivers for it).
  • You have no overdue financial obligation to the College.

Academic Advising

ALL students (both part-time and full-time) now need advisor approval to register (details: www.bucks.edu/advising).

All enrolled students have been assigned a faculty advisor (see Web Advisor or Student Planning for your assigned advisor).

Your advisor must enter a registration approval code or sign a Registration Form or a note to be surrendered at in-person registration.

You may:
