Our Campus Culture
Mike Ajjan - Student Stories

This is Mike. He's gone on Bucknell trips to the Dominican Republic to provide relief, to Memphis to learn about civil rights and to Burma to learn about its Jewish legacy. He's also obsessed with planes, which is fitting for a guy who can't stay in one place.

We require the ACT +/or the SAT.

Engineering students are required to have one year of either chemistry or physics; however, Bucknell strongly recommends a minimum of three years of science, including chemistry and physics.

You'll need to complete at least two years of one foreign language in high school to be admitted to Bucknell.

How Financial Aid Works


Question

Can I receive financial aid for summer school?


If you're required to go to summer school by a Dean because of deficient GPA and/or credit hours, aid may be possible. We can't cover the entire cost. You'll be responsible for a portion. We can't provide summer aid to a student who has graduated or will be graduating in May closest to the summer program in question.
