Campus to experience no tuition increase for 2016-17
Penn State Greater Allegheny students will see no increase in tuition for the 2016-17 academic year.
According to news.psu.edu, the Penn State Board of Trustees Committee on Finance, Business and Capital Planning on July 21 recommended a University budget and tuition and fees schedule. The budget includes no increase for resident students at eight Penn State Commonwealth Campuses, including Greater Allegheny.
The budget reflects comprehensive and ongoing efforts to control the cost of a Penn State degree.
Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer Andrew Egan said, “The University is making great efforts to continue offering a world-class education at an affordable price. Affordability is quite important to students at the Greater Allegheny campus since a large percentage of them receive some type of financial aid. This tuition freeze will enable more students to have access to a Penn State education, who otherwise might not afford it.”
