1 Just the facts You can afford Penn. financial aid Information

2 A Few Simple Ideas Benjamin Franklin founded Penn on the idea that all the best minds should have access to the finest education, regardless of their families ability to pay. To achieve this, Penn: Practices need-blind admissions, Meets 100 percent of demonstrated financial need for four years, and Provides a no-loan aid package for undergraduates who receive financial aid. Penn stands out as one of a very small number of universities that do not include loans as part of their aid packages. Penn makes it possible to graduate debt-free. Because each family s situation is unique, it is difficult to know for sure how much financial aid you might be eligible to receive until you actually apply for aid. That being said, here s what aided freshmen entering in September 2011 are receiving: Aided Freshmen by Family Income: Class of 2015 (entering September 2011) Family Income Number of Aided Students Median Annual Awards Percent of Applicants Offered Aid $0 39, $57, % $40,000 69, $51,870 97% $70,000 99, $46,680 98% $100, , $37,690 90% $130, , $30,490 91% $160, , $28,630 44% $190,000 and up 83 $18,010 29% Many factors other than income are considered. Therefore, individual awards vary based on individual circumstances. Additionally, families with non-typical financial situations (such as business owners, owners of real estate other than their primary home, and divorced parents) are more likely to receive non-typical awards. Penn founder Benjamin Franklin was 17 when he arrived in Philadelphia penniless but with the intellect and aspiration to improve his life and the community. Now, 288 years later, the University he founded remains dedicated to helping the most promising 17-year-olds make their contribution to the global community.

3 Things You Should Know about Financial Aid at Penn: We Meet Full Demonstrated Need Penn meets 100 percent of the demonstrated need of each family throughout their student s undergraduate years. This year, Penn is devoting more than $149 million to undergraduate aid. This financial aid budget is entirely dedicated to need-based aid to ensure that all students regardless of their financial background are able to attend Penn if admitted. Penn and the other institutions that compose the Ivy League do not award any merit-based or athletic scholarships. Financial Aid Glossary Aid package: The amount of financial assistance you receive. A Penn package includes grants and a work-study job. Educational expense budget ( sticker price ): Also known as the Cost of Attendance, Penn s is $57,360 for Expected family contribution ( net price ): The actual amount a family is expected to pay, including contributions from parents and student. Grant: Grants do not require repayment and are available from Penn and both federal and some state governments. Need-based: Financial aid is based on a family s demonstrated need. Penn meets 100 percent of each family s demonstrated need for all four years through its no-loan packages. Need-blind: Admissions decisions are not affected by your ability to pay or by your application for financial aid. Net price calculator: An online tool to estimate your annual expected family contribution. Estimates will vary by institution. Payment plan: The Penn Monthly Budget Plan allows you to budget fall and spring semester expenses over a 10-month period. Work-study job: As part of a financial aid package, on-campus work-study jobs allow students to apply their earnings to college expenses. How Aid Is Determined Financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need, which is the difference between Penn s educational expense budget (the sticker price) and the amount your family is expected to pay (your expected family contribution). Educational Expense Budget Expected Family Contribution Financial Need Penn s Office of Student Financial Services determines the family contribution by individually reviewing each family s financial aid application and parent and student tax returns. The following items are also considered: family size student income and assets parents income and assets (including home equity but not retirement accounts) the number of children enrolled in college extenuating family circumstances (such as illness or loss of employment) Penn reviews all aid applications individually, in many cases calculating a lower family contribution than the one determined by federal methodology. Generally, financial information from both parents is used to determine financial need, even if they are divorced or separated. Once the family s financial contribution has been determined, Penn awards an aid package, a pledge of financial support from Penn that typically includes grants and a work-study job. Unlike most other universities, there are no loans in a Penn aid package. International Students The University provides over $8 million each year in financial assistance to students who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States, Canada, or Mexico. However, because the offer of admission for non-citizens is directly linked to their ability to meet expenses, candidates whose families have the financial means to afford educational costs are encouraged not to apply for financial aid.

4 Looking Beyond the Sticker Price Because Penn dedicates more resources to aid than most schools, the net price of attending Penn could be no more than what your family would pay to send you to a public university. Note that in the example to the right, the net price to the family is the same at both schools (and is actually lower at Penn when including the other school s student loan). The Sticker Price: Penn s Educational Expense Budget Tuition and fees $42,098 The Net Price Comparison: Penn vs. Public University Financial aid package: $47,860 Grant: $44,660 This is one example, based on a particular family s financial situation. Family contributions can range from $0 to more than $50,000, depending on each family s specific circumstances. Financial aid package: $14,500 Housing $7,592 Meals $4,286 Books $1,160 Personal expenses $2,224 Work study: $3,200 Expected family contribution: $9,500 = Grant: $5,800 Work study: $3,200 Student loan: $5,500 Expected family contribution: $9,500 Total $57,360 Penn sticker price: $57,360 Public U sticker price: $24,000 $38,584 Average financial aid package for incoming awarded freshmen in Four Years of Support Penn commits to meeting your full demonstrated need throughout your undergraduate years. If your family s circumstances remain stable, financial aid remains relatively constant; if circumstances change during the year (such as a parent losing a job), your financial aid package will be adjusted. The Value of a Penn Education We understand that the cost of an undergraduate education is expensive and a major commitment for you and your family. Given the changing economic landscape, families expect that their student will receive an education that prepares them for tomorrow s job market. You will need an education that is practical, powerful, and flexible one that will allow you to adapt and to thrive in any situation. You ll need an education like the one you ll receive at Penn. Some Facts to Keep in Mind 92 percent of students graduate from Penn in four years. 14,000+ interviews are conducted annually on campus in Career Services. 75 percent of Penn graduates earn an advanced degree within 10 years. The average salary for College of Arts and Sciences graduates five years after graduating is $79,743 (Class of 2004). Penn ranks seventh on Kiplinger s Best Values in Private Universities. 83 percent of students in the class of 2010 interned during their undergraduate career.

5 What You Might Expect Examples of Aided Students Here are a few case studies of Penn aid packages received by families of varying financial situations. While these examples help provide a sense of what your family might expect, Penn cannot guarantee that every student whose family feels they resemble one of these case studies will receive a similar aid package and pay a similar net price. Nicole Nicole s father is deceased, and her mother earns a modest income to help support a family of four. Her mother s total annual income, including social security benefits for the younger children, amounts to $35,000. The total family contribution is $50. Nicole s family contribution $50 Nicole s financial aid award $57,310 Morgan Morgan lives with her parents and younger brother. Her parents total income is $88,000. The family has $135,000 in home equity and $12,000 in savings. Penn calculated that Morgan s parents could contribute $10,800 to her education for the current year. Morgan is expected to contribute $2,400 from her summer earnings. The total family contribution is $13,200. Morgan s family contribution $13,200 Morgan s financial aid award $44,160 Net Price Calculator Beginning in October 2011, Penn will provide a net price calculator at Penn reviews all aid applications on an individual basis rather than using a calculator, so the estimate provided by the net price calculator may differ from your actual award. The best way to know how much aid you will receive is to apply. Eric Eric lives with his parents and younger sister. His parents combined income is $155,000; they own a home with $210,000 in equity and have savings of $25,000. Penn expects Eric s parents to contribute $29,900 and Eric to contribute $2,400 from his summer earnings. The total family contribution is $32,300. Eric s sister is uncertain about her college plans for next year. If she attends a school with costs similar to Penn s, and if the family s financial situation remains similar, Penn will expect Eric s parents to contribute $19,250 and Eric, $2,400. The total family contribution would be $21,650. With One Child in College Eric s family contribution $32,300 Eric s financial aid award $25,060 With Two Children in College Eric s family contribution $21,650 Eric s financial aid award $35,710 Eric s Family s Options: Educational Loans and Payment Plans Even though Penn s aid packages do not include loans, parents and students may still choose to borrow from programs such as the federal Direct Loan Program to help manage their expected family contribution. These programs can help spread costs over a longer time period. Some students choose to take out loans to help build their credit ratings. See Loans at for details. The Penn Monthly Budget Plan allows you to budget fall and spring semester expenses over a 10-month period. You decide how much to budget each year. Payments begin in May and end in February.
