Welcome to the Wilkes-Barre Center!
In partnership with the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, LCCC established its Wilkes-Barre Center located at 2 Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

While responding to the training needs of business and industry, the Wilkes-Barre Center also provides a variety of opportunities for high school graduates and working adults to upgrade skills or learn new ones through both credit and credit free programs.

The Center is a complete educational training facility featuring three networked computer labs, seminar rooms, traditional class- rooms, video-conferencing equipment, "smart classrooms", roll-about units, and complete presentation equipment. The Center also offers unique 13-week class schedules for students' convenience.

The Wilkes-Barre Center is here to help you no matter where you are in your education journey. Let our dedicated staff help you:

  • Apply to the college
  • Scheduling and completing your placement test
  • Registering for classes
  • Assistance with academic advisement and support
  • Signing up for a tutor
  • Campus tours
  • And much more...

With both in-person and online classes available, the Wilkes-Barre Center offers the following degree programs:

  • A.S. Criminal Justice
  • A.S. General Studies
  • A.S. Social Work
  • A.A.S. Criminal Justice
  • A.A.S. Human Services
  • A.A.S. Legal Assisting (Paralegal)

Looking for something a bit different?

  • Still in high school? No problem! High school students can start earning college before even graduating (at a much lower tuition rate).
  • Students can complete a wide range of General Education requirements for a variety of other programs.
  • Attending another college/university? Students can enroll as visiting student.

The new clothing closet features casual to formal, interview and professional attire, all free of charge to LCCC students.
