What is the 2+2 Plan?
2+2 is a great way to start almost any of Penn State’s 275+ degree programs! Spend your first two years at our Lehigh Valley campus, then transition to another Penn State location offering your degree. Nearly 65% of your fellow Penn Stater’s 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 a lower tuition and fees and free parking!
With small class sizes and a student to faculty ratio of 18:1, you’ll enjoy personal attention and easy access to all Penn State resources and events, including:
- Alumni Network
- Athletic events
- Career Fairs
- Cultural festivals
The 2+2 process
Once you enroll at your starting campus, you do not need to reapply to your finishing campus. Your personal academic adviser will work with you stay on track to meet course requirements and help you complete your change of campus process to transition to your graduating campus. (Requirements are consistent across all of our Penn State campuses.)
