The State College Area School District board of directors approved an agreement last night with Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania that will provide guaranteed admission for any State College Area High School graduate.
Under the terms of the agreement, Commonwealth will accept State High graduates to the Bloomsburg, Lock Haven or Mansfield Campuses if they apply by December 15th of their Senior year.
On-campus housing for up to 4 years will also be guaranteed.
Additionally Commonwealth University will provide merit scholarships up to $28 thousand dollars for 4 years based on grade point averages.
This cooperative partnership is meant to enable Commonwealth University to attract a more diverse population of students who have demonstrated academic success and to enable State College area school district graduates
to obtain a quality education at a low cost.
