Financial Aid

The summer 2018 semester is part of the 2017-2018 academic year at Penn State; therefore students seeking financial aid for PaSSS MUST complete a FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov before the federal deadline of June 30, 2018. For more information, please visit the Office of Student Aid website.

Students who meet the eligibility requirements for the Federal Pell Grant for the 2017-2018 year may receive a Federal Pell Grant for up to $1480 toward PaSSS.

As a result of the 2017-18 FAFSA, students may also be eligible for Federal Direct Stafford Loans for summer. The amount of loan eligibility is typically $2750.

Direct payable cost, when using federal aid:

PA Residents
Adjusted Tuition and Fees: $1874
Federal Pell Grant: Up to $1480
Federal Direct Loans: Up to $2750
Balance due: $0 (whether or not Pell eligible)

Non-PA Resident

Additional supplemental aid may be available (maximum limits will vary based on individual circumstances) through the Federal Parent PLUS Loan or private alternative loans. Please choose carefully, as terms and conditions vary widely!

Students enrolling in PaSSS will be contacted by Karen Deery, Brandywine’s Student Aid Coordinator to go over next steps, procedures and follow-up as needed. Inquiries welcome by email at kdeery@admissions.psu.edu or by phone at 610-892-1260.

While there is state funding for summer for new students through Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), PaSSS is a six-week program, and PHEAA requires summer enrollment of at least eight (8) weeks in order to be eligible for consideration.
