Fees included in the Cost of Attendance

A General Fee is assessed to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, and directly funds Penn’s non-instructional student support services. The General Fee for full-time students provides them with full access to a wide variety of services and resources, including counseling and wellness, multicultural resource centers, student activities, recreation and fitness, career services, learning support, and much more.

This fee assists with the cost of computer labs and technological services.

This mandatory fee gives students unlimited access to Student Health Service. Direct questions about this fee to Student Health Service or call 215-746-3535.

Fees not included in the Cost of Attendance

The Orientation Fee covers meals provided during New Student Orientation in August. Meals will be served each day at times specified in the NSO Calendar. Since these are not part of the regular meal plan, the cost is listed as an Orientation Fee. The 2019-2020 NSO fee is $345.

The College House Program Fee helps to fund program costs for College Houses, from College House Computing (including costs associated with wireless installation) to the College House Music Program, Humanities Research Fellowships, Residential Program activities, and academic support services (e.g., the Penn Mentoring Program, or the Faculty Associates program). This fee is assessed to all students living in a College House.

Certain courses may charge course-specific lab fees.
