Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Clarion University has one of the lowest costs per education in Western Pennsylvania. With help of student loans and scholarships I am paying a low price for a high quality education. Clarion is recognized by AACSB International, the most rigorous and most prestigious business program accrediting body in the world. Less than 10% of all business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB International, and for a low cost that will be put on my resume when I graduate and am looking for a job.
Blayze from Saltsburg, PA
Because Clarion is a University of Pennsylvania, it is among the most affordable colleges in Pennsylvania. Clarion is also a very good school for education majors. Its programs are thorough and will give you the education you need in order to succeed in your career. If you have a lower budget or cannot afford to spend a lot on college, Clarion is a good choice.

This was one of the main reasons I came here. Clarion is an excellent value.
Dominic from Hermitage, PA
Pretty cheap tuition, but no less of an education.
Michaela from Cherry Tree, PA
Clarion gives you a good quality education without you having to overpay for each class.
Heather from Oil City, PA
Its a steal with the low tuition cost at Clarion! I have got to network with people who hold prestigious positions in politics who I never thought I would get to at such a young age.
Prince from Pittsburgh, PA
Compared to colleges in my home state, Clarion is reasonably priced. They offered me a scholarship right off the bat and considering all of the resources available on campus and the quality of education provided, Clarion is well worth the cost.
