Earning a four-year degree will be easier for Central Pennsylvania students through a dual admission agreement between Harrisburg Area Community College and Lebanon Valley College.

Officials from both institutions will formalize the agreement at a signing ceremony on Friday, December 1 at 2 p.m. in the Frock Conference Room of the Vernon and Doris Bishop Library at Lebanon Valley College.

Under the agreement between LVC and HACC, students who earn their associate degree at HACC are assured a place at LVC to complete their bachelor's degree, provided they satisfy specific program requirements.

"This agreement with Lebanon Valley College is an outstanding example of how higher education institutions can work together effectively for the direct benefit of our students," said HACC President Dr. Edna V. Baehre. "Our partnership expands the opportunities for our students, and our HACC Lebanon Campus students in particular, to pursue their four-year degree while offering them high quality, affordable education."

LVC President Dr. G. David Pollick agreed. "The partnership builds upon one of the principles of Lebanon Valley College. It is in accordance with the philosophy of providing a liberal arts education to qualified students." Pollick added, "This agreement helps assure academically-motivated students that they can achieve their goals."

The agreement enables students to apply to both institutions simultaneously, as early as their senior year of high school. Students in the program can take advantage of financial aid opportunities at both institutions, and will have access to academic and career advising services as well as library resources and campus facilities at all locations of HACC and LVC.

HACC has campuses in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and Gettysburg. LVC has campuses in Annville, Lancaster and Camp Hill.
