It’s never too early to make a plan for financing your education. We recommended that you start researching your financial aid eligibility and loan options as soon as possible. It is our goal at Penn to make education accessible to non-traditional students from the widest possible range of backgrounds, which is why we offer reduced tuition rates for Penn LPS Online courses.
If you are seeking financial aid for your Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS), we highly advise you begin the process early to ensure that your application receives prompt attention and that you will have a decision regarding your financial aid package before classes start. For more information on application deadlines please visit the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences admissions page. Students pursuing the "prove your way in" path to Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences admission may be evaluated for financial aid eligibility upon successful completion of gateway requirements; gateway courses are not eligible for financial aid. For students enrolling in individual courses or certificates, federal financial aid is not currently available.
Scholarship opportunities are available for part-time undergraduate degree-seeking students and are awarded on the basis of academic merit, financial need, and other criteria as specified by the individual scholarship fund requirements. Please be aware that Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences students are not eligible for Penn’s all-grant program.
