If a World Campus student chooses to take a remote course through a different Penn State campus, will their tuition rates change?

No. If the majority of a student’s courses are through World Campus, they will be charged World Campus tuition. However, if you register for more than one course at another campus through multi-campus registration process and the number of credits taken at that campus are greater than World Campus courses, you will be administratively changed to that campus and your tuition will be adjusted accordingly. The multi-campus registration policy permits a student to enroll in courses offered at a campus that is not their assigned campus, but there is an important restriction to consider. Students are not eligible to enroll in a course that is offered at a different campus until one week prior to the start of the semester (this fall, that’s August 17). We expect course offerings to be limited by that time and encourage students to work with their academic adviser to make a plan and a backup plan in the event that a course they want to schedule at another campus is full.
