Discover Why Bucks Smart is the Way to Begin Your Journey

Bucks County Community College was founded in 1964 as a two-year public institution. The college offers over 90 programs of study to enable students to transfer to a four-year institution, graduate with a two-year associates degree or earn a professional certificate. Bucks makes it convenient to reach your goals with courses offered at our Newtown campus nestled in Tyler Park, our Upper Bucks campus in scenic Perkasie, our Lower Bucks campus in thriving Bristol, and online through our Online Campus. The college serves more than 9,000 credit-seeking students and more than 70,000 students in noncredit programs each year, including the Bucks County Public Safety Training Centers in Doylestown and Croydon.
