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 Third Party Billing Contract.  More information about billing will be available to admitted students upon acceptance to the PCE.
