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 these four and see for yourself.

The cost per college includes other school’s tuition and fees, room and board, estimated books and supplies, other school’s estimated living expenses, and subtracts the average other school’s grant and scholarship amounts that students receive.

Annual tuition, fees, and room and board are based on the 2017–2018 rates reported on those institutions’ websites. Other school’s books, supplies, and other living expenses are based on the 2016–2017 National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports. Other school’s average annual grants and scholarships are based on the 2015–2016 NCES reports.

Tuition and Fees

More Information

The $2,780 tuition per semester allows you to register for up to 17 semester hours without an overload charge. Additional hours above 17 are charged at the rate of $185 per hour for credit or $90 per hour to audit. Credits earned by proficiency are not included in the semester’s tuition and are charged at the rate of $232 per hour. Part-time students (taking 11 hours or fewer per semester) are charged at the rate of $232 per hour for credit or $116 per hour to audit. Residence hall students are expected to take a minimum of 12 semester hours. In the rare event that a residence hall student is granted permission to take fewer than 12 hours, he is still classified as full-time financially as well as academically.

Fees

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 area hospitals.

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 Fine Arts Series or yearbook.

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

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).
