Select Tuition Cohort

Beginning 2018-2019, Youngstown State University is implementing a Penguin Tuition Promise. The promise is a cohort-based tuition, room and board, and fee model that will provide all new, transfer, and re-admitted degree-seeking undergraduate students and their families the certainty that rates will be frozen for four years. Please select the cohort that best reflects your admission or enrollment at Youngstown State University.


Select the Tuition Type and Academic Term

Please select the type of tuition rate and the academic term (year or semester) for which you are seeking a tuition estimate. Fees are updated to reflect the 2018-2019 fee schedule at Youngstown State University.
