NANTICOKE — The Luzerne County Community College’s Board of Trustees entered into an agreement with Bloomsburg University Tuesday that will make it easier for LCCC graduates to transfer to the university to complete their bachelor’s degree.


Under the new dual admissions agreement, LCCC students will be guaranteed admission into a parallel bachelor’s degree program with third-year status at the university.


“It has always been the goal of the college to improve the transfer process between institutions,” said Thomas Leary, president of LCCC. “This agreement further allows our graduates to seamlessly enter into four-year programs at our partner institution, Bloomsburg University, which has consistently ranked among the most popular choices for our students to complete their bachelor’s degree.”


In order to take advantage of the agreement, LCCC students are required to complete an intent form prior to completing 30 credits or by the beginning of their third semester at LCCC. They also must graduate from LCCC with an associate’s degree and a minimum GPA of 2.0 and enroll at Bloomsburg within a year of graduating at LCCC.


“This process began about a year ago and I’m glad to see it come to fruition tonight,” said Leary.
