Historically the tuition rate increases approximately 3-8% annually. In 2021 the tuition for completing the 15-credit PCE was $21,660 (based on the $1,444 standard credit tuition rate for non-degree, MPH and SM1 students). The tuition for 2022 will be published some time in February/March.
Expenses for textbooks and other course materials are not included in this amount. For more information about tuition and billing please visit The Office of Financial Aid.
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 Third Party Billing Contract. More information about billing will be available to admitted students upon acceptance to the PCE.
