 Out of State Students 



Welcome! Slippery Rock University warmly welcomes all Non-PA residents to our campus. In fact, 14% of first-year students are from out of state. We have students from Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and more!

SRU is pleased to be able to offer a tuition reduction for eligible out-of-state undergraduate students. This tuition reduction results in a substantial savings. Eligible students pay 150% of in-state tuition cost which is reflected on their billing statement. All out-out-state undergraduate students who qualify are billed by the Office of Student Accounts at the appropriate Non-PA resident tuition rate. No separate application is required.

Eligibility Requirements for Tuition Reduction for Non-PA Residents

  • First-Year Students: 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA on their official high school transcript
  • Transfer Students: 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA with 12 or more credit hours earned on all post-secondary coursework
  • Continuing SRU Students: must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA at SRU (eligibility determined by the Office of Student Accounts)

Students who are ineligible for the tuition reduction at the time of admission can become eligible in subsequent academic years if they meet all eligibility requirements as detailed above. Initial eligibility is determined after the Spring Semester for the next academic year. Final eligibility is determined immediately prior to the start of the Fall Semester and will include any coursework taken in the Summer Term.
