Luzerne County Community College is committed to helping our graduates continue their education to a four-year college or university. 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.
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.
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.
LCCC has many articulation agreements with colleges and universities and some are tied to specific programs. For example, a student looking for Sports Management can complete our A.S. degree in Business Administration and directly transfer to Keystone College as a junior in Sports and Recreation or College Misericordia in Sports Management. The goal of these articulation agreements is for LCCC students to be able to transfer all their credits and complete the bachelor's degree at the transfer school in two years after graduation from LCCC.
Students need to research various colleges and their admission's policies and deadline dates. This may be critical if they are applying for admission into high demand programs.
