Tuition & Fees

Each year, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education’s Board of Governors sets tuition rates and tuition-related fees for the 14 state system schools. This is typically completed on or around July 1. The Clarion University Council of Trustees sets fees which are used to support student activities and the operation of university facilities. All fees are payable whether or not the student plans to use these services or facilities.

Total costs depend upon credit load, fees, housing choice, meal plan selection, residency, location, and in some cases, program choice. Undergraduate students may determine what they will pay by reviewing the detailed breakdown below. Please pay close attention to which chart you need to refer (full-time or per credit). Graduate students and students in the Doctor of Nursing Practice Program will find their detailed breakdowns by choosing the appropriate category on the left hand side.   

Please note:  Summer sessions, as well as the winter intersession, are all charged per credit, per session.
