Affordability

Almost all of our students who apply for financial aid – 98.4% – receive some form of assistance. That means their actual cost to attend is less than the established tuition and fees. Here are examples for three different kinds of students: an in-state student living on campus, an out-of-state student living on campus, and an in-state student commuting. The examples below, which are based on rates for the 2022-23 year, will give you an idea of what you may pay. Keep in mind that your actual cost to attend may vary. Use our net price calculator to get a more accurate estimate of what your net price would be.

We're a great value. For the 2021-22 school year, the average financial aid award was:

    $20,662 for Pennsylvania students
    $27,373 for out-of-state students

That means most students paid much less than you might expect for a quality education and a degree from a world-renowned institution.

But we're not the only ones saying we're a great value.
