Lackawanna College Signs Transfer Agreement with Shepherd University
SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV – Dec. 3, 2019 —Lackawanna College and Shepherd University have signed a transfer agreement that will offer students who transfer to Shepherd from Lackawanna a 25% tuition discount as long as they have earned an associate degree and possess a cumulative grade point average of 2.8.
“We are very pleased to partner with Shepherd and provide Lackawanna College students with more opportunities to continue their education,” said Jeff Gregory, Lackawanna College Director of Admissions. “We are always looking to work with other higher education institutions to ensure that the transfer process is as smooth and straightforward as possible.”
Students who qualify for the transfer admissions tuition discount will receive it for a maximum of six semesters. In addition to the tuition discount, students can apply for merit and need-based financial aid and scholarships. Students with a 3.5 GPA can apply for Shepherd’s Scholars Program, with benefits that may include honors housing and honors scholarships.
“I’m very excited to be partnering with Lackawanna College,” said Kristen Lorenz, Shepherd University Director of Admissions. “This new agreement will add a pathway for students to benefit from two excellent educations; beginning at Lackawanna and ending at Shepherd. Students will benefit from having advisement from Shepherd counselors during their time at Lackawanna, to ensure a seamless transition into a bachelor’s program.”
