Tuition & Cost of Attendance

Penn State's Board of Trustees meets every summer to establish tuition rates and mandatory fees for the upcoming academic year.

Our Office of Admissions and Financial Aid provides estimated costs of non-tuition related expenses to assistant students with budgeting. Please be aware that scholarships and grants are available to help defray the cost of tuition.
