2020-2021 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 mid-July. Students are notified of the new rates as soon as possible.
The Clarion University Council of Trustees sets other student 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.
Below are estimated direct costs for your use when making decisions on how to fund your education for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 terms. Clarion University invoices only for direct costs: tuition and fees, housing (if living on campus) and meal plans (if purchased).
The estimated cost for housing and meals is $12,660 for the year which is based on the Suites on Main two-person shared semi-suite room and a meal plan that includes 14 meals per week plus $250 in flex money. For housing and meal plan options, as well as actual costs, click here.
Additional course fees may be billed to students in Nursing (NURS) and Communication Speech Disorders (CSD) courses, as well as to students enrolled in a lab, fieldwork, or clinical experience in a STEM-H (science, technology, mathematics, and health) related course.
Please keep in mind that there may be additional costs which are not billed by Clarion University. These costs may be for off-campus housing, books, supplies, transportation, and other personal expenses.
