Immaculata University and Diocese of Allentown Partner to Guarantee Admission

Qualifying Students Also Receive $9,000 Scholarship

Immaculata University and the Diocese of Allentown have entered into an agreement that guarantees admission to Immaculata for qualifying students graduating from diocesan high schools. To recognize the academic accomplishments of students from the diocesan schools, Immaculata will provide a minimum of $9,000 academic merit scholarship for qualifying students.

“We are very excited to work with the Diocese of Allentown on this important initiative. Our goal has been and continues to be one of offering a quality education at an affordable price,” states Barbara Lettiere ’72, president of Immaculata University.

The guaranteed admission program and the merit scholarship are effective for students entering in fall 2020. Students must be admitted as full-time, first-time students with a GPA of at least 2.5, combined SAT score of 990 and satisfy other application requirements. The merit scholarship, worth $9,000, is renewable for three additional consecutive years of full-time status and maintenance of minimum GPA. Diocesan students who earn a higher GPA and SAT score may qualify for a higher based merit scholarship. In addition to this merit scholarship, all Catholic high school students will receive a Catholic School Grant for $2,000 renewable for three additional consecutive years of full-time status.

Thirty-eight percent of Immaculata’s undergraduate, traditional-aged students graduate from Catholic high schools. The new agreement between Immaculata and the Diocese of Allentown is a testament to the commitment from both institutions to provide access and opportunity for a quality education.
