Marywood University and Northampton Community College

Announce Articulation Agreement for Social Work


SCRANTON, PA (February 13, 2017)—Marywood University and Northampton Community College (NCC) recently signed an articulation agreement for their respective social work programs. Under this agreement, NCC students earning an associate degree in social work can enroll in Marywood University and earn a bachelor of social work degree within a two-year time frame.


This agreement is the first articulation agreement between the two schools. Development of articulation agreements with two-year community colleges continues to be a priority of Marywood University, as it eases the transfer process for students in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. Marywood University partners with colleges throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania, as well as community colleges in New York and New Jersey.
