Misericordia University to Hold Student Transfer Days

Members News


Misericordia University is hosting a series of Transfer Days on Jan. 8, Feb. 13, March 11 and May 13 to provide collegians an opportunity to learn more about the academic programs, campus and admissions transfer process.


The sessions provide information about undergraduate programs at Misericordia University, and details about transferring previously earned college credits to Luzerne County’s first four-year college. Guests will have an opportunity to tour campus and speak directly with transfer specialist Christine Marks, assistant director of transfer admissions, as well as representatives from financial aid and current students.


The Jan. 8 and March 11 programs begin with check in at 9:30 a.m., followed by presentations, credit evaluations and tours. The programs conclude with lunch from 12:15-12:45 p.m. The Feb. 13 and May 13 sessions begin with check in at 12:30 p.m., followed at 1 p.m. by lunch and presentations. These sessoins conclude with credit evaluations and tours from 2:15 -3:45 p.m. All sessions are in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.


“We recognize that each transfer student is coming from a unique background and experience. We work closely with them to understand their individual needs and personal goals in order to make the transition to Misericordia as seamless as possible,” said Marks. “We will provide expert guidance on program options and acceptance criteria, as well as an informal evaluation of transcripts. It is a one-stop shop for those who are considering making a transfer.”


Misericordia University has formal articulation agreements with Luzerne County Community College, Lackawanna College, Lehigh-Carbon Community College and Northampton Community College to maximize credit transferability. Misericordia also has specific programmatic agreements with Johnson College (medical imaging), Keystone College (medical imaging and nursing), Lackawanna College (communications and sport management), Lehigh-Carbon Community College (information technology and occupational therapy) and Luzerne County Community College (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.
