Tuition and Costs

Penn State has several tools available to help determine tuition rates for our 20 campuses, and to help estimate how much you can expect to pay after financial aid:

  • The tuition website provides tuition rates when they are approved by the Penn State Board of Trustees each July. You can also calculate your tuition based on campus and residency, and view historical tuition information.
  • The Housing and Food Services website provides information about room and meal rates for each campus.
  • The College Cost Calculator provides you an estimate of the costs associated with attending Penn State as an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student for the current academic year. Please use this calculator for planning purposes only, as the Board of Trustees sets current costs in July of every year. While tuition and fees increase every year, Penn State continues to make every effort to limit the rate of the increase.
