Paying for a Penn Education
Comparing Penn's Cost
Prospective Undergraduate Students

Due to Penn’s financial aid policies, the cost to attend Penn could be the same, or less than, a lower priced school. As the example demonstrates, the net price to the family is the same at both schools (and is actually lower at Penn when including the other school's student loan debt).
