    Lackawanna College



    Angeli Hall

    Lackawanna College is the premier, private, accredited two-year college serving the people of northeastern Pennsylvania. With a focus on keeping higher education affordable and accessible to our immediate community, Lackawanna draws 80 percent of its student population right from our own region.

    With its main campus situated in downtown Scranton, Lackawanna’s expanding footprint also includes satellite centers in Hawley, Hazleton, New Milford, and Towanda.

    The curriculum at Lackawanna helps provide our students with a direct path to an associate degree or one of many different professional certifications, and our Continuing Education department has helped put the people of northeastern Pennsylvania back to work with the skills they need to succeed.

    Lackawanna College is also one of the most cost-efficient ways to begin your pursuit of a college degree. Our students graduate with approximately 40 percent less student loan debt than those who pursue their bachelor’s degree at a single four-years institution.

    From its roots as the Scranton Business College in 1894 to its current online course offerings, Lackawanna College has always understood and responded to our students’ needs as they work to find their future.


    Lackawanna College is approved by the Pennsylvania State Department of Education to grant associate degrees and is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, which is designated as a National Accrediting Agency by the U.S. Office of Education.
