Non-Resident Undergraduate Student Tuition Rates

Tuition rates are set annually by the Board of Governors of the PA State System of Higher Education. The standard non resident (non-PA) tuition rate is 225% of the resident (PA) rate. Non resident students have several opportunities to receive a reduced tuition rate.

Undergraduate Non-Resident (12 - 18 credits)

A student registered for 12 or more credits is considered full-time. Tuition for credits above 18 credits is billed at the per-credit rate.

If your GPA falls below the minimum requirements at the end of term, tuition will be adjusted for the upcoming semester and the standard out-of-state rate will be charged. We will contact you about these changes, and you will be responsible for paying the additional tuition. However, if you are not currently receiving the high achieving rate, and meet the cumulative GPA requirements for high achieving status at the end of term, your tuition will be reduced for the upcoming semester.

STEM Majors - 175% of Resident Rate

Out-of-State students who select a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math) major or STEM Education major will receive a reduced rate as long as they stay in the selected major.
