The 2013 tuition rate will be set in mid-February. Historically the tuition rate increases approximately 3 – 8% annually. The 2012 tuition for completing the 15-credit PCE was $14,225 for students not in a degree program and $15,005 for students in a 42.5 credit degree program. (The tuition fees were based on the non-degree standard tuition rate of $940 per academic credit and the degree standard tuition rate of $992 per academic credit and included the $125 registration fee.) The $120 SOPHAS application fee and expenses for textbooks and other course materials are not included in this amount.
All applicants are required to have a tuition guarantee form submitted on their behalf by the application deadline (see PCE Application Process for details). Typically, applicants have their tuition guaranteed by their sponsoring institution. Self-funded applicants will also be considered, but must guarantee their own tuition.
