Admissions Office Hosts Special Information Sessions

The next small-group session takes place Wed. Jan. 8; individual appointments are also available.

Bucks County Community College’s Admissions Office invites potential students to Admissions Information Sessions, small-group meetings that focus on the steps to become a Bucks student.

The sessions are a new, informal way to get to know the public, two-year college and learn about its academic programs. In addition, one-on-one appointments can be made as well.

“Our mission at Bucks is to help a variety of people meet their educational goals, including working adults who may not have time to attend one of our large open-house events,” said Marlene Barlow, Director of Admissions. “We’ve added these sessions to provide another opportunity for those with busy schedules to stop by.  Of course, we are always available for individual appointments as well.”

An admissions representative will provide a general overview of the programs and opportunities available and explain how to enroll at Bucks, which has maintained an open-admissions policy for nearly 50 years.

The next session is at 1 p.m. Wednesday, January 8, especially for military veterans returning to college.  Sessions take place in the Student Services Conference Room, located on the ground floor of the Rollins Center. The campus is located at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown, Pa., 18940. 

Barlow adds that now is also a good time to consider returning to college for the spring semester. Academic advising, placement testing, and registration is taking place now for courses that begin January 22. The deadline to register for classes is January 17.
