College and University Partnership Paves New Path for Students

An innovative partnership between two area community colleges and two regional universities will keep students on a pathway to a college degree with a variety of transfer agreements that will benefit students whose journey to higher education may have been interrupted. Entitled “It’s Not Over,” this pilot project brings together Lehigh Carbon Community College, Northampton Community College, Kutztown University and East Stroudsburg University to create opportunities for students seeking an associate degree and ultimately a bachelor’s degree.
