the 2+2 path

"2+2" is a process in which students complete 2 years of education at a community college and then transfer to a four-year college or university to obtain a bachelor's degree.

STUDENTS NEED TO MEET WITH AN ACADEMIC ADVISOR before taking any classes to allow for a smooth and efficient 2+2 transfer process.

2+2 is successful if the transfer path and requirements of universities are followed. Otherwise, it will take longer than 4 years to obtain a Bachelor’s degree.

Many community colleges have transfer agreements with public and private four-year institutions. These transfer partnerships help students make smooth transitions into four-year institutions.

Students that transfer to four-year universities should be aware that universities and colleges differ widely in courses they accept for transfer as well as GPA requirements. It is important to understand each institution’s respective transfer policies.
