BETHLEHEM, PA, January 12, 2021: Today, Moravian College announced a new addition to the existing partnership with Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC), a dual admission partnership agreement that is designed to set criteria for prospective students, encourage student success, and facilitate the transfer of course credits, resulting in a seamless transition from LCCC to Moravian College.
“Moravian College and Lehigh Carbon Community College have embraced a long tradition of partnering to provide students with academic advising and an excellent education in order to help them earn their associate’s and bachelor's degrees,” said Erika Mondok, executive director of transfer enrollment at Moravian College. “We are excited to offer this pathway, which will provide even more opportunities for LCCC graduates.”
Students will have early access to advising, library resources, academic lectures, and athletics events at both institutions. In addition, they will be eligible for merit-based scholarships at Moravian (once they become Moravian students), ranging from $5,000 to $26,000 annually, as well as one full-tuition scholarship awarded each fall.
“LCCC kick-started my college career by embodying its motto ‘Start Here, Go Anywhere.’ I studied abroad for a month, easily transferred my credits to Moravian, and began to shape myself as a leader through extracurricular opportunities,” commented current Moravian College student Matthew Eible, who earned his associate’s degree from LCCC in 2019 and was the first recipient of the full-tuition Moravian College Community Scholarship. “The transfer to Moravian from LCCC was eased not only through acceptance of my general education classes but by the shared common value of transformative leadership on campus.”
