Immaculata University is proud to announce an articulation agreement with Penn State Great Valley in Malvern that makes Immaculata students eligible to enroll in select graduate programs. Immaculata students are also automatically considered for the campus’ Chancellor Scholarship, a merit-based award of either $10,000 or $15,000 available to qualified students planning to pursue a graduate degree full-time (12 credits per semester).
Immaculata undergraduate programs in Information Systems, Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, Finance, and Accounting provide the academic foundation for students to pursue advanced degrees offered by Penn State Great Valley.
Located less than five miles from Immaculata’s campus, Penn State Great Valley has provided high-quality educational programs to professionals in southeastern Pennsylvania for over 50 years. They offer master’s degrees, graduate certificates, and non-credit professional development programs relevant to today’s workplace. Evening and hybrid courses are held in a flexible, seven week format, allowing students to meet the demands of work, family, and life in general.
“This partnership enriches the career potential of Immaculata University students. Already equipped with both strong liberal arts and technical foundation, they can now hone those skills through Penn State’s graduate programs,” states Immaculata President Barbara Lettiere ’72.
Immaculata students will be recommended for admissions into the following graduate programs: Master of Professional Studies in Data Analytics, Master of Science in Information Science, Master of Software Engineering, Master of Professional Accounting, and Master of Finance.
Penn State Great Valley will waive the application fee for all Immaculata students. To register, students must complete all admissions requirements and have earned a 3.3 GPA for their undergraduate coursework. Many of the graduate programs require completion of the GMAT as well.
“I’m very pleased to have this agreement with Immaculata University that allows their students to go on to a Penn State graduate education as seamlessly as possible and to further strengthen the importance of higher education to our region,” Dr. James Nemes, Chancellor, Penn State Great Valley.
