KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Kutztown University president Dr. Kenneth S. Hawkinson signed an agreement Monday, April 4, with Reading Area Community College president Dr. Susan Looney to provide a seamless transfer for RACC students to enter the KU Bachelor of Science in Physics: Engineering Technology.

Under the dual admissions agreement, Reading Area Community College students will be guaranteed admission into KU's B.S. Physics: Engineering Technology degree program with third year (junior) status at Kutztown University on the condition that they meet specific criteria.

"Our purpose in developing these important agreements with RACC is to provide quality, low-cost programs to the citizens of this region and to further develop our partnership with one of the finest community colleges in the state to serve the greater Reading area by providing well-educated, well-trained graduates, who after their graduation, can give back and serve their community," said Kutztown University President Dr. Kenneth Hawkinson."

A full-time student admitted with third year status to Kutztown University will be able to complete a Bachelor of Science in Physics: Engineering Technology at Kutztown University within four regular semesters provided that the student completes the appropriate associate degree program at Reading Area Community College and completes and appropriately sequences their remaining course work at Kutztown University while maintaining full-time status.

"We are celebrating today a new agreement in engineering with Kutztown University, one of the top transfer destinations for our graduates. This agreement is the result of great cooperation and collaboration between faculty and deans of our respective institutions and will serve well the needs of our institutions and, more importantly, those of our students,” said Reading Area Community College president Dr. Susan Looney.
