I was fortunate to do dual enrollment here during my high school years, and have a great start on getting my Associate degree by the time I graduate high school. It was a tremendous amount of work, but well worth my efforts! I am grateful to the administration at both my high school and Lackawanna College for supporting my unique and ambitious plan.

I go to the Sunbury Center of Lackawanna College; it's affordable, the professors are kind and helpful. The director and enrollment specialist are extremely helpful! The learning environment is perfect for anyone who loves an almost one on one experience.
Love the atmosphere! So many great ways to get involved on campus. All the professors are there to see you succeed and will help you in anyway they can. Definitely recommend Lackawanna to anyone looking for a quality, inexpensive school.
