HOW THE PLAN WORKS
The 2 Plus 2 Plan is for students who want to earn an associate of arts degree at Iowa Central Community College before transferring to The University of Iowa to earn a bachelor's degree. The plan connects you with Iowa advisors early on so you take the right courses at the right time to complete both degrees in a total of four years.
Stay close to home for the first two years of college, saving time and money while earning your AA degree. When you transfer to Iowa, you'll automatically be considered a junior, and the University guarantees access to the courses you'll need to earn a bachelor's degree in just two more years.
ENJOY IOWA BENEFITS BEFORE YOU TRANSFER
Participants receive these Iowa benefits even before transferring:
Because of the 2 Plus 2 guarantee, participants are required to meet certain requirements in order to join the plan, and meet ongoing requirements and checkpoints to remain in the plan after transferring.
