Bucks County Community College’s Admissions Office is holding two information sessions in January for potential students.
The small group meetings will focus on the steps to become a Bucks student, according to information from the college. The sessions are scheduled for Jan 3 and 8.
The Jan. 3 session, which starts at 3 p.m., is geared toward students transferring to Bucks from another college or university. The Jan. 8 session, which starts at 1 p.m., is especially for military veterans returning to college.
Sessions take place in the Student Services Conference Room, located on the ground floor of the Rollins Center of the Newtown Campus.
"The sessions are a new, informal way to get to know the public, two-year college and learn about its academic programs. In addition, one-on-one appointments can be made as well," according to an announcement from the college.
“Our mission at Bucks is to help a variety of people meet their educational goals, including working adults who may not have time to attend one of our large open-house events,” said Marlene Barlow, director of admissions. “We’ve added these sessions to provide another opportunity for those with busy schedules to stop by. Of course, we are always available for individual appointments as well.”
An admissions representative will provide a general overview of the programs and opportunities available and explain how to enroll at Bucks, which has maintained an open-admissions policy for nearly 50 years.
Academic advising, placement testing, and registration is taking place now for courses that begin Jan. 22. The deadline to register for classes is Jan. 17.
