Students participating in a University recognized and sponsored Study Abroad program can request that their Cost of

Admissions and Financial Aid and speak with a Financial Aid Advisor. No appointments are necessary; students are seen on a walk-in basis from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday.
If you participate in a Study Abroad program and are the recipient of a tuition-based scholarship, it is a University policy that Pennsylvania residents can receive a scholarship amount up to the equivalent of PA tuition charges for the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences (A&S); and out-of-state scholarship recipients, an amount up to in-state PA A&S tuition plus 50%. If your scholarship also includes room and board, your award will be limited to an amount up to the fees for a standard double on-campus room and an average meal plan, as used in the financial aid awarding guidleines.
Computer Purchase Expenses
Students who purchase a computer may be eligible to have an increase made to their Cost of Attendance.

must be provided. Receipts must clearly indicate that a computer was purchased and when. Students
should expect to pay between $1500 - $3000 for the computer and related hardware. The Financial Aid Office will limit the
total amount of the cost of attendance adjustment to $3000.
