Penelec has been notified and are working to address the problem, but we have no clear timeline for restoration of services. We are working with students in the affected residences to ensure they have access to food, showers, and wifi in other areas of campus. Phone service, including cell service, on campus is unreliable due to the power outage. Students, faculty and staff should monitor e-mail, the college web site, social and local media for updated information and further updates.

Prospective Students

Your Financial Aid Package

Students who have completed the FAFSA will receive a financial aid “package” in February. This document includes any financial aid a student is eligible for from a variety of institutional, federal, state, and private sources (e.g. grants, scholarships, loans, employment options). Together with resources available from the family, the total amount of financial aid options may meet the annual cost of attendance (includes tuition, fees, room, board, and allowances for books, transportation, and personal expenses). Families should use this information when comparing aid at different schools as it provides a total picture of aid.

Criteria for Awarding Aid

Scholarships/Merit Aid

Allegheny’s Trustee Scholarships are awarded without regard to financial need to students who have balanced academic excellence with other distinctive activities while in high school. Consideration for the Trustee Scholarship is automatic when students apply and are admitted to Allegheny.

Need-Based Aid

So Allegheny may calculate each applicant’s eligibility for need-Based aid, families must complete the FAFSA between October 1 and February 15 during their son’s or daughter’s senior year of high school. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) calculated by the federal EFC formula is the index used to determine federal, state and institutional aid eligibility. More Info


Allegheny competes in Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and honors the Division III limitations.  Academic and need-based financial aid are awarded without regard to students’ athletic abilities or sport participation.
