Dual Enrollment

Penn State offers dual enrollment to high school students who would like to attend the Mont Alto campus to take college courses. This is a great opportunity for students to experience college-level coursework and earn credits before their high school graduation. 

Credits earned can be applied to a Penn State degree and are part of one transcript recognized at all Penn State campuses. Dual enrollment credit may also be transferred to another college or university.

The 2+2 Plan

2 + 2 Plan

As a student, you can spend your first two years at one campus, then transition to another campus to finish your degree.  We call it the 2 + 2 Plan, and it's the most common path to a Penn State degree.

Nittany Lion Social Media Kit

Being a Penn Stater is worth bragging about, and to help you spread the word, we've developed a social media kit and Zoom backgrounds for our incoming Mont Alto Nittany Lions

Parents and family members, we believe that bragging should be contagious, so we made some graphics for you also.
