The annual Cost of Attendance is not finalized until the University Board of Trustees establishes tuition charges at their annual July meeting. This web site provides cost of attendance information for the current academic year. This information will be updated annually after tuition charges are established each July.
The cost of attendance is based upon educational expenses and modest, but adequate living expenses for the student.
Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes
A student shall be classified as a Pennsylvania resident for tuition purposes if that student has a Pennsylvania domicile and that student's presence in Pennsylvania is not primarily for educational purposes. Domicile is a person's existing and intended fixed, permanent, and principal place of residence. A student whose presence in the Commonwealth is primarily for educational purposes shall be presumed to be a non-Pennsylvania resident for tuition purposes.
