TONIGHT: Bucks hosts ‘Parents Night In’

The online information session for parents and guardians will provide information about choosing a college, fall enrollment and affordability

This year has brought about a unique set of challenges when it comes to the college decision process. With that in mind, Bucks County Community College invites parents and guardians to a “Parents Night In,” tonight, from 7 to 8 p.m.

The virtual event takes place online using the Zoom video conference tool. Those who log in after registering for the event will meet each of the department deans, advising and transfer staff, as well as the Bucks Admissions team.

“We understand the current uncertainty surrounding the decision to attend college in the fall,” said Marlene Barlow, director of Admissions at the public, two-year college. “Whether your child was already considering Bucks or whether they were planning to go to another college or university, this session is open to the entire community to support you as you weigh the options.”

Bucks offers more than 80 programs of study in seven academic departments – Arts, Business & Innovation, Health Sciences, Kinesiology & Sport Studies, Language & Literature, and Social & Behavioral Sciences. Programs lead to either a two-year associate degree or shorter-term certificate.

“Considering the abrupt changes many have faced this year amid a global health crisis, families might like to learn why Bucks is the best choice, where your student can stay close to home, but still go far,” added Barlow.

Tuition is $165 a credit for Bucks County residents. Credits transfer to most four-year colleges and universities. Complete information is at To register for “Parents Night In,” go to
