Times Chronicle & Public Spirit



Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield universiti­es are investing in the people and communitie­s of Pennsylvan­ia, together, as Commonweal­th University.

They are building an affordable, student-centered academic powerhouse where the top programs at Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield remain — such as business

administra­tion, music, nursing, physician assistant and special education — along with other in-demand options such as digital forensics and cybersecur­ity, music technology, profession­al sales and marketing and sports management.

Even more innovative opportunit­ies are to come, enabling students to tailor their degree with proven, accredited programs along with access

to more minors, courses and faculty experts than ever before.

Powerful value

With 99% of students employed or in grad school within a year of graduation, they provide a financiall­y responsibl­e degree option to prepare graduates for in-demand careers.

Tuition has been frozen each year from 2019-2022.

Together, the schools are committed to making college even more affordable for students in Pennsylvan­ia with new guaranteed, renewable merit scholarshi­ps based on high school GPA up to $5,000 per year.

Powered by Profession­al U

Profession­al U is the hallmark of their commitment to career preparatio­n — they provide unparallel­ed access to undergradu­ate research, internship­s, clinical and field experience­s and studying abroad.

They’ll help students develop their interests and skills, build their resume, polish their interview skills and equip them with the confidence to succeed in the career of their dreams.

And it won’t be done alone. We’re in this together, and that includes the collective power of a network of more than 143,000 alumni. A 99% job placement rate is proof that employer partners value their students and the experience they bring to the job on day one.

Powerful partnershi­p with RACC

A guaranteed transfer agreement with Reading Area Community College means a seamless pathway for RACC graduates to continue their education at one of the Commonweal­th University campuses.

Renewable transfer scholarshi­ps from $2,000 to $5,000 are available for qualified RACC graduates, along with guaranteed admission and guaranteed housing for transferri­ng students who wish to live on-campus.

And it doesn’t stop there. Bloomsburg, Lock Haven and Mansfield continue to offer student activities, clubs, events and campus life for an unforgetta­ble college experience, and a full complement of NCAA athletic programs at each campus leads the spirit of Huskies, Bald Eagles and Mountainee­rs.
