The answer is
YES, at one of our 14 State System universities!

Our State System universities are among the lowest in tuition of all four-year colleges and universities in the Commonwealth.

Almost 80 percent of State System students receive some form of financial aid, usually in a combination of grants/scholarships, loans, and work-study jobs. Without this aid, many students simply could not afford an education.

Each university’s financial aid office is ready to help you navigate through the various options for funding your education.

​ Typical In-State Undergraduate Tuition for 2017-2018 Academic Year: $7,492
