Financial Difficulties: Estimating your Expenses

Know how much it costs to attend Penn State. See tuition rates and room and board rates, or use the College Cost Estimate application on eLion to calculate the total cost of tuition, fees, room and meals (if applicable), and books. Discuss these costs and possible financial aid sources with an adviser in the Office of Student Aid. For help with creating your own budget, use a personal budget calculator.
