LCCC Announces a Dual Admission Partnership Agreement with Moravian College

published Tuesday, January 12, 2021
Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) announced a new addition to the existing partnership with Moravian College, 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.
“Lehigh Carbon Community College and Moravian College have a strong partnership that benefits students who wish to earn their college degree,” says LCCC president Dr. Ann D. Bieber. “This agreement includes additional opportunities to students and smooths the way for LCCC graduates to move seamlessly to earning their bachelor’s degree, all while remaining in the area. We are honored to join with Moravian in smoothing the way for students to earn their college degrees.”
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.”
