What is the 2+2 Plan?
2+2 is a great way to start almost any of Penn State’s 275-plus degree programs! Spend your first two years at our Lehigh Valley campus, then transition to another Penn State location offering your degree. More than 50% of your fellow Penn Staters choose the 2+2 plan, and regardless of which campus you select, you’ll complete both general education and major-required courses toward your degree.
2+2 allows you to stay close to or live at home, helping you save on housing. Plus, enjoy lower tuition and fees – and free parking!
With small class sizes and a student-to-faculty ratio of 15:1, you’ll enjoy personal attention and easy access to all Penn State resources and events, including:
The 2+2 process
Once you enroll at your starting campus, you do not need to reapply to your finishing campus. Your personal academic advisor will work with you to stay on track to meet course requirements and help you complete your change of campus process to transition to your new location, which is generally at the end of your fourth semester. (Requirements are consistent across all of our Penn State campuses.)
