High School Dual Enrollment
With Dual Enrollment, students can get a head start on college while in high school. Classes are held in participating high schools. These courses are college-level, preselected by the high school, and take place during the school day. To learn if your high school participates in the Dual Enrollment Program, contact your high school guidance counselor.
If your high school does not offer your preferred courses or does not participate in the Dual Enrollment Program, Bucks offers a High School Enrichment Program that may work for you.
Placement tests and submission of the high school approval form are required prior to registration.
Financial Aid is only available for students who have already graduated from high school. To obtain more information about our programs for high school students, contact the Admissions Office.
Please note that high school IEPs do not transfer to college studies. Students seeking accommodations must contact The Accessibility Office for details.
Attending Bucks after high school graduation? We hope so!
Your steps to becoming a degree-seeking student are simple:
1. Declare a major using the "Change of Major form in your account: www.bucks.edu/myrecord.
- Attending Bucks as a high school student, you were assigned a non-degree seeking program instead of a major. You'll need to change your major from "High School Student" to your intended major, even if you are undecided. Bucks has an array of majors, sometimes called "programs of study," so review your choices.
2. Make an appointment to meet with an advisor to select courses. Schedule your time at www.bucks.edu/signup.
- Please follow the instructions for "new students," even though you will not technically be new to Bucks.
- Appointments to select Fall courses will be available in late March.
Students who completed their Advanced Placement (AP) courses and took the Advanced Placement (AP) tests in high school may be eligible to use their AP test scores for course credit. Students must submit an official copy of their AP test scores (sent directly from the College Board) to the Bucks County Community College, Registrar's Office, 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA 18940. Course equivalencies for AP courses are shown on our website.
