2+2 Transition Services

Some students will start at Penn State Lehigh Valley and complete their degree here. Others will complete one or two years and transition to another Penn State campus location such as University Park. We understand that this transition period is a crucial time in a student’s college career. It is important for students to make a successful transition to stay on track and to settle in at their new campus successfully. We provide the following services to assist in these matters.

If you are a student changing your assignment to another campus from Lehigh Valley and need transition assistance contact Melissa Baker, coordinator of student services, at 610-285-5217 or [email protected].

2+2 Pride Group

Transition Timeline - Steps to Take

  1. Check out the Pride Group on CANVAS Dashboards of our 2+2 and Division of Undergraduate Students. The Pride Group includes action steps that students need to take each semester- from first-year fall semester through the summer after sophomore year. 
  2. This one-stop-shop includes steps from Advising, Academics, and Student Affairs.
  3. Students will have access to the programs and events that are designed to ease their transition in a very visible location.
  4. If a student will be graduating from another campus and it is not on their CANVAS Dashboard, they should contact Melissa Baker at 610-285-5217 or email at [email protected].
