Admissions to hold Adult Learner and Transfer Open House in Scranton

The Misericordia University Adult Admissions Office will hold an Adult Learner and Transfer Open House on Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 4 - 7 p.m.  in the Board Room, 2nd Floor of Lackawanna College, 501 Vine St., Scranton, Pa.


The event is open to adult students who have general questions about entering or returning to college and who are interested in Misericordia University’s Expressway Accelerated Degree Program. They can stop in and talk to admissions counselors.

The Expressway Program offers students the chance to earn their bachelor’s degree as a part-time student in as little as two-and-a-half years. Expressway classes are held at convenient locations throughout northeastern Pennsylvania including Nanticoke and Scranton, with shortened sessions to fit into a busy work and family schedule. 

Students in the Expressway Program can choose from over 12 majors and programs in business, health care, applied behavioral sciences, and government, law, and national security. Expressway tuition is $350 per credit, the lowest among four-year colleges in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties.

Traditional aged students, who are interested in transferring to Misericordia either from another four-year college or from an associate’s degree program, will have the chance to talk to Misericordia admissions counselors and financial aid representatives. Those bringing transcripts will receive an instant academic review.

For those unable to attend the open house, adult students may also register for an upcoming virtual open house where they will be able to speak with a representative from admissions in real time by logging onto The Virtual Open House is scheduled for October 25, 11 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
