Keystone College and Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) have signed an articulation agreement enabling MCCC graduates to seamlessly transfer to Keystone.
Under the agreement, MCCC students who graduate with an associate in arts, associate in science, associate in fine art, and associate in applied science degrees and meet transfer requirements will be guaranteed admission into Keystone’s bachelor’s degree program with junior (third-year) status. Students will be able to complete their bachelor’s degrees within four regular semesters. Keystone will award academic scholarships to qualified MCCC graduates, based upon grade point average and academic standing and will offer need-based and other types of financial aid.
“Keystone students often begin their college education at community colleges, including Montgomery County Community College,” said Keystone Director of Admissions Jennifer Sekol. “This partnership is a wonderful opportunity for both Keystone and Montgomery County Community College to provide additional options to students as they pursue a path toward a bachelor’s degree.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for our students,” said MCCC Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost Dr. Victoria Bastecki-Perez, “As part of our mission, MCCC takes a holistic approach by creating pathways for our students through partnerships like this one with Keystone, which enable students to conveniently transfer and complete their educational goals.”
Based in Blue Bell, Pa., MCC for more than 50 years has evolved to meet the educational needs of its students. The college’s comprehensive curriculum includes more than 100 associate degree and certificate programs, as well as customized workforce training and certifications.
Enrolling about 1,400 students, Keystone offers more than 40 undergraduate and graduate degree options in liberal arts and science-based programs in business, communications, education, fine arts, natural science, environmental resource management, geology, and social sciences. Located in La Plume, Pa., 15 minutes from Scranton and two hours from New York City and Philadelphia, Keystone is known for small class sizes and individual attention focused on student success through internships, research, and community involvement.
