Summer Tuition


The 2014 tuition rate will be set in mid-February.  Historically the tuition rate increases approximately 3-8% annually.  The 2013 tuition for completing the 15-credit PCE was $14,550 for students not enrolled in a degree program and $16,200 for students enrolled in a 42.5 credit degree program.  (The tuition fees are based on the non-degree standard tuition rate of $970 per academic credit and the degree standard tuition rate of $1080 per academic credit.)  The application fee, registration fee and expenses for textbooks and other course materials are not included in this amount.  For more information about tuition and billing please visit Student Financial Services.

Financial Assistance

Students are responsible for securing their own funding.  The PCE does not offer scholarships or financial assistance.  Although the majority of applicants have their tuition covered by their division/department, many pay privately as well.  The PCE does not require that students have institutional sponsorship.  Please note that institutional sponsors are required to submit an online Sponsored Billing Form.  More information about billing will be available to admitted students upon acceptance to the PCE.
