Financing Your Education

How Much Will Graduate School Cost?

The Student Financial Services tuition & fees page gives a cost breakdown for graduate students attending PSU. See PSU's Tuition and Fee Estimator for a tuition estimate, or PSU's Net Price Calculator for a total estimated cost of attending PSU, including living expenses (the NCES Net Price Calculator page explains how these numbers are determined). When estimating total costs you should take into consideration how many credits you need for the degree and how long it will take you to complete the program. You may also want to take into account how much your degree may be worth.

How Will I Pay for It?

As a graduate student, you have the option to apply for graduate assistantships, scholarships, loans, and student employment. Learn more about the options available to you from our graduate student resources:

The Financial Aid office is the primary source for current information on federal grants, loans and work-study; state grants and scholarships; institutional funds; and private scholarships.
