Age Requirements for Taking Courses
All courses are for individuals, ages 18 or older unless otherwise noted.
Continuing Education Units
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are offered for selected courses and are valuable for individuals wishing to demonstrate their participation in educational pursuits beyond or outside of a degree program. One CEU is equal to ten contact hours of participation in continuing education. Upon completion of courses granting CEUs, participants may receive a statement of CEUs earned. These are permanently recorded with the Continuing Education Office. CEU’s do not apply toward degree programs or graduation.
Bucks County Community College reserves the right to cancel a course entirely or to change its time, location or instructor. In the event a course for which you have registered is canceled, you will be notified. If you are unable to substitute a suitable replacement for a canceled course, you will be refunded all tuition and fees you have paid for the course.

The College and the Continuing Education department reserves the right to limit the number of waived registrations it accepts in its classes. In some instances, faculty and staff will be required to pay, in addition to class materials, the percentage of tuition owed to third parties who have entered into a partnership or agreement with the College.
Senior Citizen Policy
Bucks County residents aged 65 and over may enroll tuition-free in credit courses on a space-available basis. To qualify for this waiver, students must register during the period designated by the College in its semester registration publication. Tuition is waived but all other applicable fees must be paid at registration. Proof of age and Bucks County residency may be required.
Students may elect to pay full tuition to secure a seat but, in doing so, forfeit their tuition waiver for the semester. Students who choose this option should report to a scheduled registration.
This policy does not apply to non-credit courses.
