USF Lakeland partners with Florida public community colleges including Polk Community College, South Florida Community College and Hillsborough Community College-Plant City to provide a 2+2 education. Specifically, this partnership allows students to obtain their first two years (Associate of Arts-A.A. or Associate of Science-A.S.) from the local community college then complete their baccalaureate and/or graduate degree through USF Lakeland. This collaboration allows students to obtain a 4-year degree, as well as a graduate degree, without leaving their community.
