Penn State Trustees Vote To Raise Tuition For 2021-22 Year

Gene J. Puskar

Penn State will impose its first tuition increase for incoming in-state undergraduate students since the 2017-18 school year, under a plan approved by trustees on Thursday.

Incoming Pennsylvania resident students will see a 2.5% tuition increase at all campuses for the 2021-22 school year.

At the University Park campus, that will mean a per-semester increase of $224, to $9,184, while the per-semester increase at the Commonwealth Campuses will range from $162 to $184, depending on the campus, the school said.

Under the plan, out-of-state undergraduate students and all graduate students will see tuition increase by 2.75%.

At University Park, per-semester tuition for nonresident undergraduates will rise by $481, to $17,973. At all other Penn State campuses, per-semester tuition will rise by $294 to $336.

The student fee will remain flat at $265 per semester for full-time students at the University Park campus.

It will increase by $1 per semester at most of the undergraduate Commonwealth Campuses, and range from $192 to $250 per semester for full-time students.
