Introduction

Franklin Commons provides an opportunity for students in the Phoenixville and surrounding areas who do not have enough credits to enroll in Albright College’s Degree Completion Program (48 credits needed to begin), an opportunity to earn general studies and elective credits in an accelerated structure. Albright College has had a DSP presence in Chester county since 2004. Upon reaching the 48 credit plateau to enter Degree Completion, students can elect to continue their studies at our Pottstown, Blue Bell, or Media locations.
