Step 3: Consider Your Penn State Options

Your Penn State application allows you to select two campuses as starting points for your Penn State degree. Make an informed choice by learning more about Penn State’s 20 undergraduate campuses and the World Campus, Penn State's online degree program.

Some things to keep in mind about campus selection:

  • Tuition is lower at campuses outside of University Park. Those cost savings can add up—between $6,400 and $9,800 during your first two years of study alone.
  • Students starting at a campus outside of University Park can participate in the 2+2 plan—two years at a starting campus followed by the final years at University Park or any campus offering the intended degree.
