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.

it worth it
Amber from Philadelphia, PA
TOTALLY WORTH ALL THE LOANS I AM TAKING OUT, I HAVE REAL EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST BOOK KNOWLEDGE.
Patrick from Amesbury, MA
Bang for the buck I really see paying 22000 dollars a year kinda obsure when some of the classes aren't counted towards your major.
Jennifer from Berwick, PA
The instructors all seem very eager to help and truly want the students to learn.
Travis from Williamsport, PA
most students get a lot of financial aid, i only had to pay about 7k a semi so it wasn't to bad
Cristina from Cochranton, PA
The school is a really good price for tuition compared to a lot of major universities. At this school, you are still getting a degree with a Penn State affiliation without the price of going to Penn State! The dorms are really nice for a low price. The bookstore will help you out at the end of the year and buy your books back so you don't lose that much money buying them!
Amanda from Lititz, PA
you get everything you could imagine form this school they do everything they can to help every one. all study groups are free and you major activities really go into what you really want to do with all the fun stuff.
Joseph from Zelienople, PA
The price is a little expensive for my personal taste but with the amazing atmosphere the faculty and staff produce, the up to date technology, the laundry list of organizations and events, I have come to the conclusion that this education and my time is worth every penny and moment that I spend here.
