Bucks County Community College will confer more than 980 degrees and certificates to its Class of 2024, including 537 May graduates. Of those, 494 earned associate degrees and 43 earned certificates.

The College will hold two commencement ceremonies on Thursday, May 16 in the College’s gymnasium on the Newtown Campus (275 Swamp Road, Newtown, Pa. 18940). The 2 p.m. ceremony is for graduates from the following three academic departments: Business, Innovation, and Legal Studies; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; Social and Behavioral Science. The 6 p.m. ceremony will include graduates from four academic departments: Arts and Communication; Health Sciences; Kinesiology and Sports Studies; Language and Literature. Both commencement ceremonies will be streamed live for those unable to attend in person.

Other celebrations this week include the Bucks County Public Safety Training and Certification Fire Academy Graduation and the Nursing Pinning Ceremony.

The Basic and Advanced Fire Academies’ graduation will be held on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. in the Newtown Campus gymnasium. Firefighter training is integral to the public safety of the region as the majority of fire departments in Pennsylvania are comprised of volunteers. The training allows the students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to serve in fire departments state-wide.

The Nursing Pinning Ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 15 at 6 p.m. in Newtown Campus gymnasium. All 56 graduates have earned their Associate of Science in Nursing and are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. The Bucks program’s pass rate for the 2022-23 year was 96.97%. The Associate Degree Nursing program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.
