Tuition and Paying
Investing in you!
A Penn State education is an investment in your future. Earning a degree in the arts, performance, or design fields can provide distinct personal and societal dividends. That College of Arts and Architecture and Penn State as a whole are committed to providing resources, because we know costs are an important factor in any decision to invest in a college education. We want to help you to make an informed choice and be aware of the many opportunities available.
The resources on this page can help you understand specific expenses, how to afford a college education, what your tuition pays for, what scholarships and awards are available, and more.
