Lackawanna signs new articulation agreements with Mansfield, Widener
Agreements further expand transfer options for Lackawanna graduates
SCRANTON, Pa. – Lackawanna College recently signed new articulation agreements with Mansfield University and Widener University, further expanding the already diverse options that Lackawanna students have to transfer their credits after graduation.
“We at Lackawanna are proud of the quality of our students, as well as our curriculum and programs, which make possible the direct articulation to exceptional four year institutions like Mansfield University and Widener University,” Lackawanna College President Mark Volk said.
The agreement with Mansfield University expands on the Academic Passport possibilities that already existed for students to transfer their associate degree to any of the 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The new program-to-program agreements allow students to enter Mansfield’s Business Administration or Criminal Justice bachelor’s degree programs upon completion of their degree at Lackawanna.
“Mansfield University is proud to enter into this transfer articulation agreement with Lackawanna College. This partnership will provide a seamless and guaranteed transfer process and allow students more educational opportunities,” added Mansfield University President Fran Hendricks.
The College’s agreement with Widener adds a new university to the broad list of those who offer direct transfer opportunities to our students. The deal allows students who complete the Hospitality Management program at Lackawanna to transfer credits to the Hospitality Management bachelor’s degree program at Widener. Students who wish to transfer to Widener prior to obtaining their degree from Lackawanna must submit their transcripts for a course-by-course evaluation.
“Lackawanna College is excited to offer our students the opportunity to further their education by enrolling in Hospitality Management or Business Administration in Pennsylvania-based universities,” said Lackawanna College Business Division Chair and Professor Bettyann Karr. “Both programs offer the flexibility tailored to meet the student’s individual interests while preparing them for careers with a bright employment outlook.”
Since its founding in 1894, Lackawanna College’s mission has been to train future generations of hard-working professionals. The College offers nearly 30 associate degree and certificate programs at its main campus in Scranton and satellite centers in Hawley, Hazleton, Towanda, and the School of Petroleum & Natural Gas in New Milford.
