The cost of a college education continues to climb with growing questions and concerns about affordability issues.
For both Penn State and Pitt they are known as State related Universities but if state funding went away, they would be a private school
That would mean increase recruitment of out of state students who pay higher tuition.

Penn State’s state appropriation about 339 million dollars has remained the same for the past three years
The average college student in Pennsylvania leaves college with 35 thousand dollars in debt.
