Penn State Greater Allegheny is committed to providing prospective students, current students and parents with accurate information to assist them in obtaining the most available financial aid.
Student aid provides the means to permit eligible students the access to a postsecondary education that otherwise would not be possible. Generally speaking, the student's family is expected to be the primary means of support for meeting college costs. However, when that is determined insufficient, student aid can be the resource to assist in costs for the student's education.
There are generally four types of aid available to students: grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study.
The links at the left provide specific information on requirements, how to apply, and types of aid.
New students and their families should watch the student financial aid overview video before attending the New Student Orientation Program in the summer. Current students may also find this overview helpful.
