Spring semester courses at Bucks remain mostly online

Students will be allowed on campus for courses that require hands-on components

In the interest of protecting the health and safety of the community, Bucks County Community College announced that most courses in the spring semester will remain online and remote, and students can come to campus only for courses that have a required hands-on component.

The plan is identical to what was implemented for the fall semester amid the ongoing global pandemic.

“We did not make any of these decisions lightly, and our first priority is ensuring that our Bucks community stays safe and healthy,” said college president Dr. Stephanie Shanblatt.

The decision was made in collaboration with a team led by Provost Lisa Angelo that consulted with faculty and staff. It comes in time for students to meet with academic advisors to plan their courses for next semester.

Students enrolled in the specified hands-on courses will be granted access to campus for the class time allotted and will be directed to leave campus once their class has finished. These classes include portions of health sciences, chemistry, culinary arts, kinesiology, workforce training, public safety training, and some music and arts.
