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.

In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

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

3.51 Average Rating
The school is on the expensive side, but a place filled with an enthusiastic and wonderful staff is priceless.
Davina from Plainfield, NJ
This school is pretty expensive, since it's a private school, but it's pretty worth it. The skills and knowledge gained at the school can't be compared with most other schools. The professors are well-educated in their fields and can offer great assistance whenever you need it.
xxchidigurlxx from NJ
For roughly $32K a year for undergraduates, I would say that if you really took advantage of the college and actively participate (which I couldn't do as a commuter because everything was at night and I hate taking the subway home when it's pitch dark), it would definitely be worth the price because the equipments that the labs have are top of the line and you can really do a lot here.
Mary from Philadelphia, PA
While the school is VERY expensive the professions it prepares you for will pay well enough to exceed your student loan debt plus more! All you have to do is be devoted and follow through (and dont change your major too much!)
Tiamia from Philadelphia, PA
Graduating from this school will result in a job, and a great job at that. If you want to dive into the medical fields, look no where else. Each semester job fairs are held where employers come and look for you! You can get offered a job your freshman year!
Daniel from Linwood, NJ
It is very expensive! Sometimes, students do not know where the funding goes but the education seems to be worth it!
Tiffany from Philadelphia, PA
USP is worth going to if you are serious about your major and want to be well off after you graduate. This school is expensive but the classes teach you and prepare you for a lot and are geared toward your specific major from year one. However, the cafeteria does not have a vast selection, the library is small, and the meal plans can be outrageous in that they do not carry over from semester to semester, so anything left over is money lost out of your pocket.
