Lackawanna College and the University of Scranton - A Jesuit University

Lackawanna College and The University of Scranton have teamed up to establish over 30 program articulation agreements, offering clear pathways for Lackawanna College graduates to transition to The University of Scranton to complete their bachelor’s degrees. These pathways cover various fields including business, health and more, providing students with a streamlined way to continue their education.

“The formation of more than 30 program articulation agreements between Lackawanna College and The University of Scranton stands as a groundbreaking initiative, reflecting our mission to offer affordable educational opportunities for our students,” Provost of Lackawanna College Erica Barone Pricci, Ph.D., said. “By streamlining credit transfers and offering diverse academic pathways, these agreements allow our students to engage with a large range of bachelor’s programs. This collaborative endeavor underscores our joint dedication to fostering educational accessibility and elevating the academic landscape for our student community.”

These agreements cover 33 bachelor’s degree programs, including majors like accounting, finance and operations management.

“These agreements represent a new chapter for The University of Scranton, allowing us to grant access to a Jesuit education, through our liberal arts tradition, to a broader student demographic. This is at the core of our mission, creating pathways to our Catholic and Jesuit educational tradition for a diverse student body and providing financial support to students through our merit scholarships,” Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at The University of Scranton Michelle Maldonado, Ph.D., said. “This is a proud moment in the history of the University, allowing us to embody our founding mission to provide affordable educational opportunities to the Scranton community.”

To be eligible, Lackawanna College students must earn their associate’s degree with a minimum GPA of 2.75 and enroll at Scranton within a year of graduation. Students who meet the criteria can complete their bachelor’s degree at the University within four regular semesters. They also have the opportunity to earn nine credits at Scranton while attending Lackawanna at half of the University’s tuition rate.

Additionally, Lackawanna College graduates with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher accepted into a degree program at Scranton through an articulation agreement qualify for a University of Scranton merit scholarship, starting at a minimum award of $20,000 per academic year for full-time students.
