Tuition & Costs

At PCC, you get a quality education from a solid, biblical perspective. You’ll learn from qualified teachers who care about you and enjoy a beautiful campus (in Florida!). But the best part: your education is affordable.

Low tuition and room & board as well as financial assistance through scholarships, Student Employment Opportunities, and loans are what make PCC so affordable. However, Pensacola Christian College does not accept federal or state funds or government-funded state loans.

How does PCC compare to other colleges and universities?

Four years at PCC gives you the highest quality at the most affordable price. Just compare the four below and see for yourself.

Application Fee and Reservation Deposit

When you apply, a $50 (nonrefundable and nontransferable) Application Fee must accompany your application. During the application process, you’ll also be asked to pay the $125 Reservation Deposit. After the Reservation Deposit is received, you’ll be contacted about the status of your application. The Reservation Deposit is nonrefundable and nontransferable unless the applicant initiates cancellation and submits a written refund request within three working days of the payment and before classes begin. The Reservation Deposit will be credited to the student’s account on the Sept. 25, 2017/Feb. 19, 2018 statement.

Health Services Fee

Resident students will be charged a health services fee of $132 per semester which covers the cost of on-site medical appointments and transportation to off-site medical appointments when needed. Non-resident students needing to see the medical doctor may do so for a fee of $15 per visit. Resident and non-resident students who incur fees for on-campus labs, diagnostic testing, and pharmaceuticals will have these charges applied to their account at the time of service. After-hours health needs and serious illnesses or injuries are referred to off-campus medical facilities associated with one of three hospitals in the area.

Student Services Fee

This fee covers student services and activities such as the library, Fine Arts Series, athletic events, yearbook, and collegian and class dues. The part-time student’s fee does not include the yearbook or Fine Arts Series.

Full-time students (12 hours or more)
Residence hall students $150
Town students $150
Part-time students (11 hours or fewer)
Town students (6 to 11 hours) $100
Town students (1 to 5 hours) $25

Security Deposit

Each new undergraduate and Academy student is required to place a $50 Security Deposit for unpaid breakage costs, property damage, or account charges. The Security Deposit will be applied to the student’s account after the termination of enrollment to cover any outstanding balance, and then the remainder will be refunded.

Academic Program Fee

The Academic Program Fee is paid with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th payments each semester. This fee varies from one program of study to another. Some majors require courses that use special facilities or equipment, and the fee reflects that usage. Academic Program Fee charges are assessed according to the declared major at the end of the drop/add period and are listed in the catalog with each major. Part-time students pay a prorated fee based on the number of credits taken. Students with a double major pay the larger program fee plus half of the smaller. Students with an undeclared major pay a fee of $25 per semester (3 payments of $8.33).
