What is a 2 + 2 Agreement?

Students attending community colleges who plan to pursue specific majors at SIUE may benefit from 2+2 programs. These agreements allow students to follow a very specific curriculum while attending their first two years at the community college, then transfer into their intended major at SIUE. These programs allow students to efficiently progress toward completion of their Bachelor's degree program. For programs that offer competitive admission at SIUE, 2+2 agreements ensure that transfer students are as prepared as SIUE students to compete for admission.

Students who are interested in participating in a 2+2 Program while enrolled at their community college must complete a 2+2 application indicating the future term they plan to attend SIUE. Admitted students receive an acceptance letter from the University containing necessary information to access resources at SIUE. Students are encouraged to engage in selected activities to help them connect with the university.

By agreeing to participate in this program, students will receive a waiver of SIUE's admission application fee, an ongoing automatic evaluation of transfer credit each semester, academic advisement as appropriate, and periodic program updates. In addition, out-of-state students participating in formal 2+2 agreements may qualify for a special tuition rate of 1.2 times the in-state rate.
