ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSITY IN-STATE TUITION OFFER

Robert Morris University’s mission is to change students’ lives so that they can go out and change the lives of others for the better. This is done through professional experiences, service learning, global experiences, undergraduate research, campus leadership, and cultural experiences.

Our main objective is to internationalize our campus as we welcome students and faculty from other countries into the Robert Morris community. In doing this, international students are charged the same tuition as US or in state students at Robert Morris University.
