Transfer Agreements

To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Lehigh Carbon Community College students to Temple University, Temple and Lehigh Carbon Community College have established the following transfer agreements: 


Dual Admissions

The Dual Admissions agreement between Temple and Lehigh Carbon Community College conditionally admits students to Temple at the same time they are admitted to Lehigh Carbon Community College, and provides the opportunity for merit scholarships to Temple for eligible students. Interested students must enroll in the Dual Admissions program before completing 30 credits, including credits from any colleges previously attended. Students are then admitted to Temple upon attaining their associate's degrees at the community college. Click here for more information about Dual Admissions with Lehigh Carbon Community College.
