RACC offers a variety of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs with clear pathways for students to continue on for their bachelor's degree.
RACC students in more than 20 programs can choose Bloomsburg’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Technical Leadership program where courses can be completed using online technology and classes on RACC's campus.
RACC students who maintain a minimum 3.5 GPA for their AS in Engineering Transfer Program are eligible for admission consideration to one of Bucknell University's engineering BS programs of study: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering Environmental Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
- Waive the admission application fee.
- Provide you an opportunity to meet with a Bucknell representative prior to graduating from RACC.
- Accept at least 54 credits, including high school dual enrollment credits.
- Accept credits, if applicable to Bucknell’s specific engineering program of study, for Mechatronics and Machine Tool Technology Certifications.
Sign a letter of intent before completing 30 credits in RACC’s AS in Engineering Program.
A select number of high achieving RACC engineering students will be chosen to participate in a six-week residential program at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA. The selected engineering students will receive a stipend, room, board, and tuition for two classes taught by Bucknell University faculty. Participating students are expected to return to RACC to complete their associate the following academic year.
Application review in early February. Final applications for the Summer Scholars Program are due to Bucknell University by the end of February.
California University of Pennsylvania
RACC students in Mechatronics Engineering Technology, Machine Tool Technology and Electric Utility Technology can transfer to a Bachelor of Science in Technology Management degree at California University of Pennsylvania.
This pathway provides a 2+2+2 articulation model that allows student to progress seamlessly from the secondary CTC, to RACC’s associate of applied science to Cal U’s Bachelor of Science Degree in Technology Management.
Lock Haven University
RACC students who earn an Associate in Science degree can utilize this program-to-program agreement with Lock Haven to earn their bachelor's degree. Lock Haven programs of study include Biology, Biology/Chemistry and Science with a minor in Nanotechnology.
RACC students who are pursuing Nanoscience can continue on to Millersville for their bachelor's degree through this Nanoscience program-to-program agreement.
Penn State University
Penn State Berks has a Nanoscience program-to-program agreement for RACC graduates that includes a capstone semester studying at Penn State's main campus.
RACC graduates with a degree in Mechatronics can also continue to Penn State for their bachelor's degree.
