Financial Aid (How to Pay for College)

A Penn State education is an investment in your future.

Like any investment, there are up-front costs paid in anticipation of long-term gains and benefits. Student financial aid - educational loans, scholarships, grants, and work-study positions -- can help with those costs.

For most students, the responsibility for paying the majority of educational costs rests on their families. Most Penn State Students and their families us personal savings, tuition savings plans, student summer employment, and Penn State's payment plans, in combination with student financial aid, to pay for their education.

 Don't miss this important opportunity to find out how to make a Penn State education affordable!
