okay so im really confused with this. i dont have the grades to be admitted into penn state main campus but lets say i get into altoona. im not sure what i want to do yet so if i go into altoona undecided and then later decide i want to be a Phsycian assistant would i get moved to main if i get good grades? since altoona doesn't have that major? im just really confused with the whole majors and 2+2 programs they have going on and need clarification.. like what if someone decides their major later on in the year and altoona doesn't have it but UP does

    You can complete the first 2 years of any major at Altoona. UP doesn't have physician's assisting last time I checked though.
    Once you start at a branch campus, you stay there for 2 years. There are very very few exceptions to that.
    You can be undecided going into Altoona. There are a few majors for which you must start freshman year and you must start at UP, but those are few and far between. If you go into nursing, you must stay at whatever campus you start at.

    So, in general - start at Altoona, move to UP after 2 years to complete your major.
