Bloomsburg University Guarantees Lehigh Carbon Community College Graduates Admission With Agreement
SCHNECKSVILLE, PA (02/08/2022) — Graduates of Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) will be guaranteed admission and have a chance to earn a scholarship to Bloomsburg University thanks to a new transfer agreement signed by the two institutions.
Students must complete at least 30 credits at LCCC, then must apply for admission to Bloomsburg. They must then graduate with an associate degree in any of LCCC's majors.
Under this agreement, LCCC graduates will enter Bloomsburg University with at least junior standing in a comparable parallel major. They are also guaranteed a renewable transfer scholarship based on their academic performance. Depending on the student's grade point average, these transfer scholarships are valued between $1,500 and $3,000 annually at Bloomsburg. Students must maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.50 and be enrolled full-time to remain eligible.
"We are delighted to collaborate with our colleagues at Lehigh Carbon Community College to provide students from LCCC seamless matriculation to Bloomsburg and provide students with a guaranteed renewable transfer scholarship," said BU President Bashar Hanna. "BU is committed to working with community college partners to ensure students have the best path to success. This agreement is another example of partnerships in action."
Students will benefit from the streamlined process of earning their associate degree from LCCC, at an affordable price and while remaining close to home. LCCC graduates can then build on their education by earning a baccalaureate degree through this seamless educational partnership. The collaboration between a community college and a state university benefits students by encouraging them to obtain a quality education at a low cost, while also providing the commonwealth with additional qualified graduates.
