Commonwealth University-Mansfield Extends Pennsylvania In-State Tuition and Scholarships to Southern Tier Students in 6 New York Counties



Commonwealth University-Mansfield will offer Pennsylvania in-state tuition and scholarships to new, first-year and transfer students in the Southern Tier of New York who live in Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Tompkins counties.

Eligible students residing in those six counties can earn up to $20,000 in in-state merit scholarships over four years, reducing the cost of tuition by 65%.

"Mansfield has long been a popular destination for Southern Tier students seeking a transformative education to advance their career path," said Stephen Lee, vice president of enrollment management. "Extending the in-state tuition rate and scholarships to students in these six New York counties makes earning a Mansfield degree even more affordable and accessible.

"We're thrilled to provide the same educational opportunities to students across the Twin Tiers," he added.

Mansfield, Bloomsburg, and Lock Haven universities integrated as Commonwealth University of Pennsylvania (CU) in 2022 to expand innovative academic opportunities in high-demand career fields. Commonwealth University offers more than 160 program options across five locations in Pennsylvania, allowing students to customize their college experience.

The Pennsylvania in-state tuition rate for Sothern Tier students is available only at the Mansfield location of Commonwealth University. Students who select a 2+2 program, where the curriculum requires completion at another location of CU (Bloomsburg, Lock Haven or Sayre), can maintain the in-state tuition rate at the other location assuming they have completed the full two years at Mansfield and have exhausted the required courses before making the transition.

Students can use their high school GPA to determine the amount of scholarship they are eligible for and learn more about in-state tuition rates at [].

Students interested in learning more about CU-Mansfield are encouraged to attend the upcoming Fall Open House on Saturday, Nov. 11. For more information, visit
