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

3.68 Average Rating
If you come to Kutztown University, you definitely get more bang for the buck. It is a mid-sized school with all the amenities of a large college campus. Rolling green hills dot the campus and off-campus living is not very far from the university. Come for a visit!
Rodney from Philadelphia, PA
I would say Kutztown is a pretty cheap school. Both of my parents went there and both have great full time jobs, meaning K-town has some credibility.
Thomas from West Lawn, PA
As an international student, I have to pay way more than the usual rate. However, there are some scholarships available for almost everyone. So it's not bad.
Jayaruwan from Sri Lanka
Of course every poor college student asks for lower tuition and less expenses everywhere, but it really is worth it compared to other school prices I've seen.
Kelly from Allentown, PA
Coming from a community college, the expenses are the biggest issue for me, and at Kutztown, a campus more than 10x larger than my community college, I don't pay much more than I had at my community college, and I have the ability to get my Baccalaureate Degree.
Donielle from Shoemakersville, PA
Kutztown gives you so much for your buck. There are so many events planned where they give away lots of free goodies. Kutztown is one of the cheaper schools where you will still receive a great education. I am paying for school by myself and Kutztown is one of the schools that does not exceed a tight budget. Kutztown is definitely the way to go when you have a tight budget and want a good education.
Sarah from Dunmore, PA
Something most students don't realize that if you are a full-time students you are paying the same amount for 12 classes as 18 classes. Kutztown charges you as if you are taking 18 credits so try to take as many credits as you feel you can handle.

This university is definitely worth the money. I for one, pay for my own tuition. I have no money whatsoever, and am paying with every dime I make in my own job. For a 19 year old college student, this is very difficult. The only reason I haven't left this school yet is because of how amazing and worth it the university really is. I am in the process of getting another job that way I can hopefully pay off more of my tuition. For those of you who are fortunate enough to take out a loan, or have your parents assist you with paying tuition, then you are very lucky and should definitely still consider Kutztown University. An overall AMAZING school!
Chelsea from Laurys Station, PA
Money is something that is very tight for me. I am financing my entire way through school, so it is important to save as much money as possible, so I am not worrying about having to pay back loans for the rest of my life. With tuition being one of, if not THE lowest, in PA, Kutztown University is a great school with a wonderful reputation, that will not burn a hole in your pocket for attending.
