PLEASE NOTE: PSU requires that all students taking 5 or more in-load, non self-support credits have comprehensive health insurance coverage. All eligible students will automatically be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan available through PSU, which is $560 for each Fall, Winter, and Spring terms (Spring term covers insurance coverage throughout the summer). This cost is NOT factored into the tuition and fee estimator. If you already have a comparable health insurance plan in place, you may waive out of the student plan, and will not be charged the $560 per term. For more information on the PSU Plan or waiver process visit

PSU charges a $40/credit fee for online courses. That fee is not included in the above esitmates unless the program is completely online. 

Matriculation Fee: PSU has a single matriculation fee of $325, applied once to any degree seeking student (undergraduate, graduate, or post-bacc) in their first term of enrollment. Students will pay this fee only once, regardless of any changes in student type or level. Students who paid it for a previous degree won't be assessed that fee again when they pursue subsequent degrees or change levels.
