Bucks County Community College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
Took a voluntary layoff from a full time job to go back to this college because I was working two jobs so I made a tough decision to better myself. I finished the hybrid medical billing and coding program. I spent $ 3,000 on a course that did not prepare you well enough for the CPC exam. The whole class failed. So now out a job and money. Program should NOT be taught in a hybrid course. As we all know.. It takes Doctors 20 years plus to get there job fully.. Trying to learn it in 3 months isn't practical or probable. .
BCCC was built on the Tyler Estate, which was formerly owned by Stella E, a well-known artist of her time. In keeping with her artistic legacy the school continues to provide students with a great art program. While traveling in Corning, NY, I once toured the facilities of the world renowned Corningware Manufacturer and witnessed glass blowing demonstrations as professionally done in their facility for decades. I was shocked when I toured the BCCC campus to see the same exact set up and a BCCC skilled artisan instructor of 30 years doing a glass blowing demo right on campus. I was immediately amazed and impressed with the art dept. at BCCC and all that it has to offer, especially as a community college. We are one of the few community colleges to have these amazing facilities available to art students. What a gift! I am so pleased to be able to learn these skills in a facility, which exactly replicates the professional glassblowing industry and under the tutelage of such a skilled, experienced and talented instructor. These are practical skills which are easily transferrable from the school to the workplace and which will ultimately result in greater job/career opportunities within this industry.
By far this is best school to start your secondary education. They have great class with educators who what to help you succeed and are willing to sit down with you one on one to help you get on the right track. They have a library that is well stock for essays needing to be down and a bounty of computers to right your essays on. The price for a semester is on average $3000 give or take which is a great price. They also have awesome transfer agreements with colleges like Temple University which also can include scholarship money at Temple. If I had to say on negative thing about the college I would have to say parking during the day can be extremely hard on main campus unless you're there early in the morning you might have to park in a very distant parking lot from your classroom building.
Many people look at Bucks County Community College as a type of "13th grade;" A lot of people complain saying that they are "stuck there" due to financial instabilities. However, in my opinion Bucks offers quality education at a decent price. You would get the same education at Bucks that you would at any University. Its close to home, flexible hours, and plenty to do. Many people scared me before I entered college telling me that professor's do not care about their students. However, I experienced differently. Every professor I had made a difference in my college career. One in particular, for those of you who are looking at Criminal Justice, make sure you take classes with Harvey Ellis; he is one of the most influential professors you will ever have. Each professor takes time out of their schedules in order to help you accomplish your semester goals; if you ask for it. My advice to you is to use your time at Bucks and utilize all of the opportunities that you have there! It really is a wonderful school!
