Bucks Offers Dozens of Courses Completely Online During Intersession

Students can log on and learn from Dec. 26 to Jan. 15 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 under three weeks during Intersession at Bucks County Community College. Registration is underway for online classes beginning Thursday, December 26 and ending Wednesday, January 15.

Bucks is one of the few colleges in the Philadelphia 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 more than 30 courses offered, including Introductory Accounting, Basic Human Anatomy, Effective Speaking, and U.S. History I and II.

All courses are offered completely online, allowing motivated students to study from home.  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 $123 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 Intersession.

Students can look up courses and register online at www.bucks.edu. In addition, the Spring 2014 Credit Courses brochure mailed to each Bucks County household in November lists Intersession courses. Registration must be completed by Thursday, December 19.

Registration is also taking place for the Spring 2014 semester, which begins Wednesday, January 22. The last day to register is January 17. For more information, call 215-968-8100 or e-mail admissions@bucks.edu.
