Scranton, Lackawanna County-The Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton celebrated two milestones this morning.

The school has just been awarded full accreditation by The Liaison Committee for Medical Education.

It has also been granted full accreditation by The Middle States Commission.

It means the school's programs meet established standards and students can now be eligible for federal loans.

The process to get accreditation has taken five years.

It also means both accrediting agencies believe the college's finances are sustainable.
