Domestic Aid

Penn stands committed to access and affordability. That’s why we meet 100% of demonstrated need for our domestic students—AND we’re need blind.

Penn is a need-blind institution for students that are citizens or permanent residents of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.* That means that we don’t consider your financial need when we make decisions about your admission. If you’re admitted to Penn, we’ll cover your need—it’s as easy as that.

To apply for financial aid, you must submit a separate application for aid in addition to your application for admission. What you’ll need to submit:

  1. FAFSA
  2. CSS Profile
  3. Penn Financial Aid Supplement (PFAS)
  4. Federal Tax Returns

* Penn is need-aware for international students—click here for more information.
