KEYS Program (Keystone Education Yields Success)
KEYS is a grant funded program of the PA Department of Public Welfare (DPW). It has been designed to provide the opportunity for PA TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) cash recipients and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to enroll in Pennsylvania’s community colleges. KEYS students may be enrolled on either a part-time or full-time basis. DPW and PA’s community colleges provide a KEYS Facilitator to work with TANF and SNAP students and help them get the services and support they need to be successful in college and achieve their career goals.
Bucks County Community College KEYS staff provide career counseling, tutoring and academic support including help with financial aid, and discuss other supportive services available through the County Assistance Office, as well as assist in connecting the student to other community agencies and College resources.
How to enroll in KEYS: If you are currently enrolled at any of the Bucks County Community College campuses and are receiving TANF cash benefits or SNAP benefits, or if you are receiving TANF cash benefits or SNAP benefits and are not currently enrolled at BCCC, but would like to learn more about the program, contact the BCCC KEYS Facilitator, or your case worker at the County Assistance Office.
