Estimated Cost

2016-2017 estimated direct costs

 
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.  Students are notified of the new rates as soon as possible.

The Clarion University Council of Trustees sets Clarion and Venango College 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 direct (billable) costs depend upon credit load, fees, housing choice, meal plan selection, residency, location, and in some cases, program choice.  Nursing students may incur additional course fees for certain classes.  Below are estimated direct costs for your use when making decisions on how to fund your education.
