The presidents of Hagerstown Community College and Shippensburg University signed an agreement Thursday that makes it easier for students hoping to graduate from the Pennsylvania school to take their first two years of classes at HCC.

The Dual Admissions Program provides for a "seamless" transfer between the schools and helps students "avoid the hassles of credit transfers," Shippensburg University President Anthony Ceddia said.
"The students will be able to transfer without any loss of credits," HCC President Norman Shea said. "They will transfer in as a junior."
Shea said HCC students do not always receive credit for all their courses when transferring to another school.
Ceddia said the program will provide Shippensburg with "good students. Men and women who are committed to continuing their education."
Under the agreement, students can apply for the Dual Admissions Program as early as senior year in high school, but no later than after completing 30 college-level credits in their program.
