What kind of student are you?

  • Adult Students

    The student body at Bucks is a diverse mix of ages and backgrounds. As the “community’s college,” we welcome anyone ready to enhance their skills, earn a certificate, or complete a degree. Some of our adult students finished high school to join the workforce, the military, or to raise a family. Others went onto colleges around the country and began a career, and when ready for a change, they sought out Bucks to become educated in a new field. Whatever your career needs and desires are, and whenever you’re ready, Bucks can help you achieve your goals.
