Tuition and Fees - Clarks Summit University

Undergraduate Tuition

Plan your college finances with confidence!

At many other colleges, your costs and financial aid options change year to year, and this can have a serious effect on your ability to plan and pay for your education.

At Clarks Summit University, you can confidently plan for the total cost of your degree. We have removed this uncertainty by locking in your rate from the start. Whatever the tuition rate when you enter school, that rate will remain consistent for your entire residential undergraduate experience. This will save you more than $6,000 over a four-year experience!

These rates apply to residential undergraduate students who are enrolled for the first time at Clarks Summit University in the Fall 2018 semester or Spring 2019 semester.

Locked Tuition
Whatever the tuition rate when you enter school, that rate will remain consistent for your entire residential undergraduate experience. This will save you more than $6,000 over a four-year experience!

Decide Early
High school juniors can enroll at CSU and lock in their tuition rate one year early! This can mean an additional savings of more than $4,000 over the cost of a bachelor’s degree.

Start at CSU While You’re Still in High School
High school juniors and seniors can take college-level classes from CSU, allowing them to earn college credits while fulfilling high school requirements. The cost for this High School Dual Enrollment will be fully reimbursed for you when you become an on-campus student at CSU (even better, that reimbursement will be doubled if your GPA is 3.5 or better!).
