Bloomsburg University is a great place to be you!

Opportunity in reach

Costs total about $8,903 per semester for tuition, fees, room and meals for Pennsylvania residents and about $14,312 per semester for nonresidents. Add about $500 for books and classroom materials. More than $1 million in scholarships are awarded annually. Other support includes loans, grants and work-study. About 90 percent of students receive some form of financial aid; the average amount of aid is $10,000 per year.

Bloomsburg University’s tradition is based on doing more than just what’s required. It’s based on going the extra mile, taking the extra step. We don’t just “train” students — we help them define their interests and ambitions. Our faculty are here to offer the guidance students need to chart a path toward realizing their goals.

Students have abundant opportunities here on campus to hone and develop leadership skills and creative talents. They can explore internship possibilities, pursue undergraduate research projects with faculty and engage community service projects. All of these experiences help students stand out to future employers.

We make it personal

Bloomsburg University understands the power of the network — 80 percent of all jobs are found through networking. Our students have plenty of opportunities to tap into the Husky network of 60,000 alumni and dozens of business partners. In addition to academic courses, our Professional U initiative gives students the chance to take part in experiences that build professional skills each year through their college career as freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.
