Financial Aid

A Penn State education is within your means

Having a Penn State degree is a great return on investment, but managing that investment shouldn’t be a burden. We’re here to help with loans, grants, scholarships, and payment plans. Even adult students have options to help them meet the financial obligation of obtaining a degree.

There is a way to finance your future

Our student aid coordinators can help you navigate the financial aid process, evaluate your financial circumstances, and can assist you in finding funding, including federal financial aid and adult learner scholarship opportunities, to help you achieve your academic goals.
