Your college education will be one of the most important investments of your life. You need to consider both the quality and the cost of the education you will obtain in deciding how to make that investment. A Penn State education is a sound investment in your future.  

All cost of attendance elements can be viewed at the website, Tuition, Fees, and Cost of Attendance, once you select the campus location.

Financial aid is money to help pay for your college education. Scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study opportunities can help make your education more affordable! The Office of Student Aid provides support to New Kensington students who receive one or more of the four basic types of financial aid as well as students who qualify for veteran's benefits.
