As Pennsylvania’s most affordable four-year public higher education option, PASSHE has the power to provide students with affordable education and training opportunities beyond high school, setting students on the path to achieving the career—and life—they want in Pennsylvania.
PASSHE students come from all walks of life, experiences, and income levels from every corner of the state. Many are the first in their family to go to college, working while learning, or raising children. Their education and distinct campus and residential experiences at a PASSHE university propel them into good sustaining jobs that create economic security for themselves and their families and provide a tremendous return on investment.
From driving social mobility to serving as engines of workforce development, the power and promise of PASSHE shows daily in what our universities do for their students, their communities, and the commonwealth. PASSHE prepares generation after generation of students for success.
