Schnecksville, Pa., June 7, 2024 – Lehigh Carbon Community College is encouraging students who have been displaced by recent closings of higher education institutions to reach out for assistance to ensure their education is minimally disrupted.

Students from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, which is closing effective Friday, June 7, and from Triangle Tech with a campus in Bethlehem, which announced its closure this week, are encouraged to reach out to LCCC for assistance with their education and career pathway.

Students from both institutions can make immediate appointments with admissions representatives and be prepared to register for either online courses this summer (five-week session starts July 8) or any of the range of courses in the fall semester, which starts Aug. 26.

For University of the Arts students, a range of general education courses are offered in an online format during the summer session, which could be used for transfer to a four-year college or university. In addition, the fall semester features a variety of arts-related courses, including graphic design, art, drawing, painting, theory courses, ceramics and metalsmithing. Students interested in arts education also have a number of course options. Students should contact the Office of Admissions at or 610-799-1575.
