Transfer students may be considered for all programs at the College except for athletic training, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology.

HACC Transfer Students

There are two resources to help ease the transfer process for full-time and part-time transfer students from Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) to Lebanon Valley College (LVC). The HACC Transfer Services web page has Curricula Checksheets (please select "Lebanon Valley College" from the drop down menu) for specific LVC majors, as well as a Course Equivalency list. These documents will help you plan your transfer to LVC.
