Transfer Agreements

Misericordia University's credit transfer policies allow students to maximize the credits they've earned to stay on track for their graduation.

Any student entering the University with an associate's degree in a field related to their intended major at Misericordia will normally not be required to complete more than 66 credits to earn their bachelor's degree. This policy typically allows students to complete their degree in two years time. Further, if you have an AAS degree in a technical field, we'll accept the entire degree, allowing you to receive a BS in professional studies in 66 credits.

To help maximize credit transferability, Misericordia University has formal articulation agreements with Luzerne County Community College, Lackawanna College, Lehigh Carbon Community College and Northampton Community College as well as specific programmatic agreements with Johnson College (in Medical Imaging), Keystone College (in Medical Imaging and Nursing), Lackawanna College (in Communications and Sport Management), Lehigh-Carbon Community College (in Information Technology and Occupational Therapy) and Luzerne County Community College (in Communications, Occupational Therapy, Sport Management, Information Technology and Medical Imaging).

Misericordia also offers a special financial award for any full-time student transferring from Keystone College, Lackawanna College and Luzerne County Community College. If you are thinking about transferring to Misericordia from one of these institutions, contact us, and we'll help you make the transition.
