THE 2+2 PROCESS » You can begin most majors at any campus, where you’ll take your General Education and prerequisite courses before moving to your ending campus to complete your degree. » Toward the end of your second year, you will complete the change of campus process to start the transition to moving to your final campus.

THE CAMPUS ADVANTAGE » Twenty campuses in diverse communities across Pennsylvania » Four-year degrees at every campus » Clubs, organizations, and athletic teams at each campus, including Division I, II, and III sports, intramural teams, and club sports » Engaged learning opportunities capitalizing on campus partnerships with local business and industry » Options for living on campus, off campus, or commuting from home » Tuition savings possible at various campuses

CHOOSING A PENN STATE CAMPUS » Penn State gives you the freedom to live and learn in an environment that suits you best. Some students choose to remain at one campus for all four years, while others spend their first two years at one campus and transition to another for their remaining two years. Each campus has unique qualities including their size, environment, and location. » Students choose the 2+2 plan for many reasons; some to stay close to home or save money. Others may be looking for smaller class sizes or particular sports. Whatever the reason and wherever the campus, all students are members of the Penn State community.
