Value for the money

Frostburg State is committed to making a high-quality education accessible to everyone. Frostburg State university was named first among Maryland public intuitions by Washington Monthly for social mobility, research, and providing opportunities for public service.

We are one of the most affordable 4-year colleges in the state of Maryland. We keep tuition low and financial aid plentiful so you can focus on earning your college degree. Washington Monthly named Frostburg State in the Northeast Top 100 colleges and universities for the “Best Bang for the Buck.” Plus, with our Regional Tuition Rate Zone, students in Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Ohio who live within 120 miles of campus save more than $5,000 per year over out-of-state rates.


Students here don’t just get a textbook education – they gain experience working on current issues, creating vibrant content and addressing real-world challenges before they graduate, inside the classroom and out! Prestigious internships hosted by groups like the U.S. Senate, the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society and IBM help you jump-start your career. Want to participate in research? Our professors actively involve students in their work, and every student has a chance to take on a big project of their own.


Frostburg State excels at putting lessons into action, and nowhere is that more evident than in our efforts for sustainability. Frostburg State University is a recognized Tree Campus USA, and the town of Frostburg is a Tree City USA. The Lane Center, our student union, and the Gira Center are both certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council, which means they don’t just look great, they’re also easy on the environment. And our Sustainable Energy Research Facility, a completely off-the-grid complex dedicated to studying sustainability, is both a unique resource and a fine example of what we can accomplish.
