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

3.22 Average Rating
What can I say ... This is PENN STATE! One of the top Universities in the country; with opportunities and answers for all of your educational needs. The ability to not only turn out the best kinds of scholars, but also well-rounded individuals, who are an asset to the school and the community, as well as to themselves. I am a legacy student (meaning that other family members have attended and graduated from here: father, grandfather, aunt, great-uncle and 2 cousins), but I am starting to see that Penn State is more than just a place to learn and receive an eventual degree, but truly is A WAY OF LIFE! There is so much more to Penn State than just football (although that's pretty darned good) and the Abington Campus is now in the process of moving into a league of its' own, becoming an individual force to be reckoned with, as well as being a part of, and able to draw on, the vast resources of a powerful whole. They say that one of every 27 college graduates in the country has some manner of ties to Penn State, and I agree. It truly IS a lifestyle, and it is a matter of pride when we declare that ... We are ...PENN STATE!
