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.

What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Easily one of the best points in choosing this school. It's a great price for a Penn State degree. The 2+2 plan is a lifesaver as well if you want to commute but Worthington doesn't offer the major of your choosing. You take two years of basic general education classes at one campus, then transfer to a larger Penn State Campus that offers the rest of the classes you need for the major. Commuting to Worthington for the first two years saves valuable funds that would otherwise have been spent on food and board.
