Costs for Current Students
Tuition and Fees Beginning Fall 2018
Effective fall 2018, USciences is launching an initiative to reset tuition, which will offer price transparency and provide cost stability for current students. For current students, the tuition schedule based on a student’s program of study will be frozen at 2017-18 levels for the remainder of their time at USciences. All current students returning for fall 2018 will see savings as a result of this freeze by eliminating the previously planned 3% to 3.5% annual tuition increases that would have occurred over the course of their remaining years at USciences.
General fee will remain consistent in your program of study for your remaining years at USciences. This pricing does not include any professional, clinical, or transportation fees.
The Office of Financial Aid can provide specific details reflecting what you will pay for the remainder of your time at USciences. Since each student’s situation is different, if there are any questions, please contact Financial Aid at 215-596-8924 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Financial Aid Offices in Griffith Hall, room 100.
