Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

At less than $2,000 a semester in tuition and fees, Penn Highlands is highly affordable; the entire cost of full-time attendance, books and all, can easily be covered with a full Pell Grant for an in-county resident, no loans required. However, the Financial Aid Office only lets you spend $450 on books per semester (if you're a full-time student; half that if you're part-time). This can be a real pain, since textbooks for a full-time semester tend to cost over a hundred dollars more than that. Used volumes are available for purchase, but many courses require you to buy new books, sometimes with a costly CourseCompass code if the course requires access to a CourseCompass account. Fortunately, the school's Financial Aid Office is efficient at providing students with the needed information promptly. It is never crowded, so anytime is a good time to drop by for help.
