Financial Info

At PCC we’ve chosen to provide not only an excellent Christian college education, but also one that is surprisingly affordable. Every student enrolled at PCC receives an automatic financial benefit of several thousand dollars. In fact, nearly 75% of PCC alumni graduate with a bachelor’s degree without debt, while nearly 75% of college grads across the nation graduate with debt. This is possible because of our low tuition, room & board, and the financial assistance available to qualified residence hall students through scholarships, the Work Assistance Program, and loans. Pensacola Christian College does not accept Federal or state funds or government-funded state loans.

How does PCC compare?

Compared to the average cost of four other institutions, the four-year cost of PCC is over $10,000 less, without receiving any federal government grants on which other institutions rely. PCC students needing additional financial assistance may apply for A Beka Foundation loans of up to $4,000 a year.

PCC’s Student Worker Program employs approximately 2,100 students each school year, who work an average of 11.4 hours per week earning approximately $2,531 per year, or $10,125 over 4 years.
