The benefits of PASSHE.
ESU is a member of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), a system of universities that combine to enroll the largest number of Pennsylvania residents among all four–year colleges and universities in the Commonwealth.
Being part of PASSHE brings ESU—and you—significant benefits, the most important of which are cost and affordability. As tuition at public and private universities increases across the country every year—putting a college education out of reach for many Pennsylvanians—PASSHE has not increased in-state undergraduate tuition for the past five consecutive years.
That enhances your ability to graduate on time and begin your professional career with little or no debt.
And with the combined resources of its member institutions, PASSHE is able to control costs and ensure that resources are directed where they matter most—providing you with a high–quality education that will propel you to success in your chosen field.
