Lincoln University of Pennsylvania Partners With Delaware County Community College

Lincoln University, the historically Black educational institution in Pennsylvania, has entered into a partnership with Delaware County Community College in Media, Pennsylvania, that will allow qualified students who graduate from the community college with an associate’s degree to transfer to Lincoln University with full junior standing, thereby reducing their cost and time to baccalaureate degree completion.

Students earning an associate’s degree at the community college will be guaranteed admission to Lincoln University and can enroll in a parallel major at the university. A total of 17 associate’s degree programs at the community college are included under the agreement.

Delaware County Community College enrolls just over 10,700 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 28 percent of the student body.

Brenda A. Allen, president of Lincoln University stated that “providing a seamless pathway from the associate degree to the bachelor’s degree is what this agreement aims to achieve. In the coming months, Lincoln University will work with Delaware County Community College to help ensure that students have a clear 2 + 2 pathway to follow. This will entail working through the curricular requirements of both institutions so that students can enter directly into their major areas of study once the associate degree is completed. These pathways will be articulated for both Lincoln’s main campus and our adult completion programs at our School for Adult and Continuing Education in Philadelphia.”
