Institutions, where graduates matriculate, include Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Indiana Wesleyan University, John Carroll University, Lake Erie College, Kent State University and Youngstown State University. Lakeland also has a 2+2 articulation with Ursuline College, which allows students to transfer all of their credits and graduate with a bachelor’s degree in two additional years or less.
