The Morning Call, Sunday, April 24, 2005
Article by Sam Kennedy on hard-sell admission tactics employed by Lehigh Valley College, formerly Allentown Business School, which, according to many LVC students, lead to crushing debt and broken promises of job access and careers. An investigation by The Morning Call included interviews with more than 20 LVC students and graduates and a dozen former LVC faculty and staff; documentation from federal and state education departments, and internal LVC documentation. Applicants are told their credits, which are often a steppingstone to a bachelor's degree, can be transferred to other schools. However, according to Kennedy, LVC students who decide to transfer find their options limited. Schools, such as DeSales and Cedar Crest College, may accept some LVC credits.
