  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
Be self aware and push yourself to get things done. There are a few good councilors but you should know what you want to do and get it done. There are a ton of programs available to help you get out and get integrated into the university culture and even overseas!
Jacqueline from Honey Brook, PA
Cheyney University is a good college. I like the time there, because it's filled with nothing but positive people. It's a safe and homey environment and I plan to spend the rest of my college years there.
Shamir from Philadelphia, PA
In my league, friendly atmosphere, friendly guidance to help start me in the right direction. I am excited and determined to make my parents proud of me in which I was a handful in high school.
Khalil from Philadelphia, PA
The students, staff and professors are very nice.
I started band camp there and the welcoming was great.
The new dorm I am assigned to is beautiful.
