Adult learner and transfer open houses scheduled for April

The Misericordia University Adult Admissions Office will hold a series of Adult Learner and Transfer Open Houses in April for adult students who have general questions about entering or returning to college and who are interested in Misericordia University’s Expressway Accelerated Degree Program.

The first open house will be held Tuesday, April 8 from 4-7 p.m. in Room 431, Building 4 of Luzerne County Community College (LCCC), 1333 S. Prospect St., Nanticoke, Pa.   
The second open house will be held Wednesday, April 9 from 4-7 p.m. in the Board Room, 2nd Floor of Lackawanna College, 501 Vine St., Scranton, Pa.
The Expressway Program offers adult students the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree as a part-time student in as little as two-and-a-half years.
