Bucks County Community College was founded in 1964 as a two-year, public institution. It now offers nearly 80 programs of study that lead to either an associate degree or certificate. Successful graduates transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete a bachelor’s degree, or directly launch a career, depending on the major. Classes are held at the original campus in Newtown, Pennsylvania, the Lower Bucks Campus in Bristol, the Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, and online through Bucks Online. The college serves more than 9,000 credit-seeking students and more than 70,000 students in noncredit programs each year, including the Bucks County Public Safety Training Centers in Doylestown and Croydon.
