Keystone College/Luzerne County Community College sign dual admissions agreement

Jul 13, 2021

Keystone College President Dr. Tracy L. Brundage and Luzerne County Community College President Thomas P. Leary signed a Dual Admissions transfer agreement that will offer guaranteed admission to Keystone for LCCC graduates to pursue their bachelor’s degree.

This is the second transfer agreement between the schools in recent years. The previous agreement in 2019, enabled LCCC early childhood education graduates to seamlessly transfer to Keystone.

Under the agreement, LCCC students will be guaranteed admission into a bachelor’s degree program with third-year (junior) status at Keystone upon graduation from LCCC with an Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, or Associate in Applied Science degree with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0. Students also must complete a Dual Admissions Intent Form and satisfy all other transfer requirements.

Students also will be eligible for academic scholarships from Keystone of up to $4,000 per year.  Additionally, students enrolling in the program are eligible to take 12 credits at Keystone at no cost during their studies at LCCC.

“We are so excited and honored to partner with Luzerne County Community College for the second time in two years. This agreement will significantly benefit students throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania by creating new career opportunities in a wide variety of fields and professions.”

“Our continued partnership with Keystone College provides an opportunity for LCCC graduates to follow an affordable pathway to attaining a bachelor’s degree,” said Thomas P. Leary, president, LCCC. “This new agreement further provides a guaranteed transfer process with no loss of credits and also helps to alleviate student debt.”
