Undergraduate Financial Aid Resources

Aid from Penn

For undergraduates seeking financial aid from the university, please visit the office of Student Financial Services (SFS). Here you will find step-by-step instructions on how to fill out the required applications and paperwork.

The University of Pennsylvania’s need-blind policy ensures that no one is denied admission because he or she requires financial assistance.

In accordance with this policy, review of your admissions application is independent of review of your financial aid application. Penn is committed to meet 100 percent of your financial need, as determined by Student Financial Services.
