Costs & Financial Aid

Penn State Abington’s Financial Aid Office works to make your attendance affordable.  Nearly 80 percent of all of our students receive some sort of financial assistance.  This assistance, determined primarily on need, is comprised of federal and state grants, student loans, academic scholarships, and work study.  Additional parent and student loans are available if needed.


We take pride in offering students efficient, personal help, and we assist students by appointments, by phone, by email, and by walk-in office hours.


The first step in getting started, after you are accepted for admission to Penn State Abington, is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and request the Student Aid Report (SAR) be sent to Penn State University. Our Federal ID number is 003329. In order to receive the most favorable financial aid package from Penn State, you should complete the FAFSA by March 1 for the upcoming fall semester.
