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.

For the most part your money gets you a lot. The ITS department and Metz Dining Services are they only areas where I feel like I pay too much for what I get.

There is alot fo financial aide availible here. Also, with the great programs, it is worht it.
Sarah from Imperial, PA
Gannon at face value is relatively expensive. Financial aide is really good though, and once you get your award letter you can send a letter back with an argument to try and get more financial aide. I did this because I increase my SAT score the second time I took it and also increased my GPA my senior year. I ended up getting $1000 more per year!

No matter where you go, college will be expensive. Gannon is very good about giving as much financial aid as possible, but it's still a lot of money for school. Definitely worth the price though. Education is so important, you need to insure that you get a good one.
Gannon is a little pricey but that is because it is a private school. The programs here are awesome and pretty well known. There are also many businesses in the area that work with the students for jobs, internships etc. that really help make the price of the school worth it.
