LCCC welcomes transfer students from other colleges and universities. Students transferring to LCCC must submit the following information for admission:
- A completed application for admission
- Official transcripts from all other colleges and universities
Full credit will be considered for work taken at another college or university, provided the course applies toward the program of study being pursued at LCCC. Acceptable credits from another college or university may be applied to a major field of concentration at this College to the extent that acceptance of these credits would not preclude further work in the major field of study. Luzerne County Community College can accept up to one-half of the credit requirements for a degree or certificate at this College. Only those credits earned at LCCC will be used in computing the student's grade-point average.
Credits for Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology I and II and Developmental Psychology will be accepted in transfer to a Health Sciences Program only if they are completed within 5 years of entry. All required science courses must be 4 credits and have a lab component. A grade of C or better is required in each course. Anatomy and Physiology I and II must be completed at the same college for acceptance.
Transferring to other colleges and universities from LCCC
LCCC participates in several transfer agreements with colleges and universities. To ensure your credit transfer is seamless, LCCC has developed written agreements with a large number of baccalaureate degree awarding institutions to coordinate programs for the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science and the Bachelor’s Degree in Arts or Sciences. Careful planning and working closely with your counselor at LCCC and a transfer counselor at the four-year college or university will ensure your credits will transfer.
As long as our students follow the terms of those agreements and graduate with an Associate in Arts or Sciences degree at LCCC, they are guaranteed admission at the baccalaureate institution and advanced standing credit for courses of study completed at LCCC.
Also, to help ensure credits transfer to colleges and universities nationwide, Luzerne County Community College is accredited by the Commission on High Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, 215-662-5606.
