Penn State Mont Alto is a small and inclusive community where students receive a world-class Penn State education in a personalized environment. Our academic offerings cover in-demand fields, including nursing, business, and project and
supply chain management.
We work together to give back to the University, the communities we serve, and the
world, whether that’s through service-learning, community service, or our entrepreneurship innovation hub, the Mont Alto LaunchBox.
Students can complete eight bachelor’s degrees and seven associate degrees at Penn State Mont Alto.
Penn State's 2+2 Plan allows students to complete their first two years at the Mont Alto campus and then transition to another Penn State campus to complete one of 275 Penn State majors.
