A candidate for admission to any of Lebanon Valley College’s Continuing Education certificate or degree programs must submit a completed application formwith the required application fee. An official high school transcript is required if students have fewer than 24 semester hours of transferable college credits. Students planning to transfer to Lebanon Valley must submit official transcripts of all completed college or university courses. Official transcripts relating to military or business courses also may be evaluated for possible transfer credit. Although candidates may begin taking classes before they have been accepted, they must speak with an advisor before registering for courses. To arrange an admission interview with an advisor, call 717-867-6213 in Annville or toll free at 1-877-877-0423. Decisions on all part-time student applications usually are made within one month after the last required transcript is received.
Continuing Education Programs
Continuing Education offers credits programs on five levels: certificate, associate, baccalaureate, advanced professional certificates, and teacher certification from non-matriculating, post-baccalaureate students. Certificates are starter programs that approximate the beginning of a four-year college experience, ideal springboards from which to go on for an associate's or bachelor's degree. Advanced professional certificate programs are intended for persons who have already been awarded a bachelor's degree in one discipline and desire to study another discipline in some depth.
A second bachelor's degree may be awarded to adult students who already have received a bachelor of arts or science from Lebanon Valley or another regionally accredited college or university. In such cases, students must only complete the major requirement for the second degree, or a minimum or 30 credits, whichever is greater.
The following majors can be completed through coursework offered in the evening: accounting, business administration, health care management, individualized, and psychology. All other undergraduate programs offered by the College can be completed during the day on a part-time basis.
Teacher Certification for Post-baccalaureate Students
Lebanon Valley College offers teacher certification to a variety of special students: students with degrees from other colleges, teachers seeking certification in other fields, or Lebanon Valley College alumni seeking certification for the first time. All candidates must meet the criteria for Admission to Teacher Certification Candidancy as detailed under the Department of Education.
