Scranton/ La Plume – Keystone College and Johnson College have signed a dual admission agreement enabling Johnson graduates with associate degrees or certificates in several programs to seamlessly transfer to Keystone to pursue their bachelor degrees.
Under the agreement:

The agreement is effective in the fall of 2019. Students transferring from Johnson to Keystone will enter with third year status.
“Partnering with Keystone College provides a new pathway to a bachelor’s degree for Johnson College students. Having a pathway to a bachelor’s degree provides the opportunity for students to stack their credentials and further advance in their careers,” said Johnson College President and CEO Katie Leonard.
