USciences students have always had a passion for discovery. Since its founding as the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1821, the institution has been educating innovators and the next generation of science and health care leaders.
Like our founders, we recognize that higher education is not a luxury; it is a necessity. While much has changed over the last 200 years, access to higher education remains a critical priority and affordability remains a challenge—in some ways, even more now than ever before.
- Over the last fifty years, tuition has risen from $960 to $37,000 a year.
- The University does award financial aid to nearly all of our 3,000 students, but many students, and their families, must deplete their savings to finance their education.
- While many students secure immediate employment, a significant number still struggle to repay their student loans.
You can help ease our students’ burden by joining with our supporters who make their success possible.
