Your Penn State World Campus tuition is calculated at a cost-per-credit rate based on the program you choose and the number of credits for which you register.
In addition to the cost-per-credit, students are responsible for the information technology fee each semester of enrollment, as well as course material costs. During your course of study you may also incur charges if you require transcripts, credit-by-examination, and exam proctors.
Tuition is due when you register for classes, typically the month before the semester begins. A deferred payment plan is available for some programs, as one of many ways to pay your tuition. Learn more about payment options for World Campus.
You can estimate the costs to enroll in a specific program by selecting an answer in the drop down menus. The tuition estimator will generate a result based on the most current academic year tuition rates. Rates below are for the 2016–17 school year.
