Undergraduate Tuition for 2006-2007 Academic Year
Total undergraduate charges for tuition, fees, room and board at the University of Pennsylvania will increase 5.25 percent for the 2006-2007 academic year, bringing the total cost of an undergraduate year to $43,960. The increase was approved last Thursday by Penn’s Board of Trustees.
Tuition and general fees for undergraduate students for the 2006-2007 academic year will increase 5.5 percent to $34,156; average room and board charges will increase 4.3 percent, to $9,804. A portion of the housing increase will go into a funding pool to support necessary capital improvements to Penn’s College Houses, as was done last year.
Penn will continue its longstanding need-blind admissions policy, which admits students based on academic achievement, without regard for their ability to pay. The University will also continue its full-need policy, which guarantees that those students who matriculate with demonstrated financial need will receive financial aid packages that meet the full extent of the their need for a full four years.
