Bucks Offers Courses Completely Online During Winter Session
Students can log on and learn from Dec. 15 to Jan. 12 between semesters, then transfer credits back to their ‘home’ college or university
College students can make the most of winter break – and save a tidy sum on tuition – by earning up to six credits in just four weeks during Winter Session at Bucks County Community College. Registration is underway for online classes beginning Friday, December 15 and ending Friday, January 12.
Bucks is one of the few colleges in the region offering the highly concentrated academic term. It’s the perfect way to catch up on required courses, get ahead for the spring semester, or retake a course from the fall. There are 47 courses offered with 61 total sections, including Introductory Accounting, Basic Human Anatomy, Effective Speaking, U.S. History and English Composition I, plus many more.
All courses are offered completely online, allowing motivated students to study from home, or from wherever they are spending their winter break. What’s more, credits easily transfer to most four-year colleges and universities, enabling students to work toward their degrees at a lower tuition rate – just $145 a credit for Bucks County residents – and transfer credits back to their home school. Students with a satisfactory academic standing can take up to two courses during Winter Session.
Students can look up courses and register online at www.bucks.edu/winter. In-person registration sessions are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, December 12 and 13, in the Registration Office, located in the lower level of the Linksz Pavilion on the campus at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown Pa. Registration must be completed by Thursday, December 14. Classes begin online on Friday, December 15. For more information, visit www.bucks.edu/winter, call 215-968-8100 or e-mail email@example.com.
