A $50 Application Fee must accompany each new or re-enrolling admission application. This fee is nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Student Services Fee—Fall/Spring

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

Payment Plan—Fall/Spring

Any student who plans to enroll for fewer than 12 credits in a semester should contact the Business Office for specific financial details concerning his account.

The basic cost for the school term may be paid by the semester. A payment plan of four payments each semester is also available to students who are U.S. or Canadian citizens or who are U.S. permanent resident card holders. Payments may be made by check, money order, Visa®, MasterCard®, or Discover®. Payments may be charged automatically to a credit card for students who apply for this service. Please note: We are unable to accept postdated checks or to hold checks. The August 1 [January 18] payment must be paid in order to be eligible for class registration and to secure a space in the residence hall.

Students with accounts more than 10 days in arrears may not be allowed to attend class until their accounts are made current. If after students have missed 5 class days their accounts are still not current, they may be required to discontinue enrollment.

A Beka Foundation Educational Fund

PCC maintains charges that are among the lowest in the nation; thus in effect, every student enrolled in PCC receives an automatic financial benefit of several thousand dollars.

A Beka Foundation Educational Fund provides low-interest loans to deserving students who need help in financing their graduate education at PCC. Students attending year-round (fall/spring) are eligible to apply for A Beka Foundation loans upon completion of 9 credit hours. Students who meet A Beka Foundation Educational Fund loan requirements may be permitted to borrow up to $2,000 per year for up to four years.

Financial Terms—Summer

Tuition, room and board, and fees for the summer program are due before registration. Students are expected to register for all their summer courses at the same time. The student will be charged a $7.50 Drop/Add/Change of Course Fee for changes made after the initial summer registration. Payments for the exact amount may be made by check, money order, Visa®, MasterCard®, or Discover®. It is of great advantage to the student at registration to pay ahead of time. This may be done by mail, online, or upon arrival. (Since there may be miscellaneous charges added after registration, such as Drop/Add/Change of Course Fee, the student is responsible to see that these are paid in order to receive his grade report for that session.) The only exception is full-time Christian workers Summer Payment Plan.

Payment Plan—Summer

This plan is available to graduate students who work full time in a Christian ministry, who are not planning to attend the College year round, and who register for nine or more credits during the summer semester. All fees and one half the cost of tuition, room and board are to be paid on registration day. The balance of the tuition, room and board is to be paid in four equal payments on the following dates: October 5, November 2, and November 30, 2015; and January 18, 2016. Any payment that is more than nine days late will be charged a $15 late fee each month. Final session grades will be released upon full payment of the extended payment plan.

Student Services Fee—Summer

This fee covers student services such as library access and on-campus parking.

Technology and Student Services Fee—Distance Learning

This fee provides technology services to students including corresponding hardware, infrastructure, and support; individual on-campus e-mail accounts; access to Eagle’s Nest; and course delivery. In addition, it provides services such as library access, including online databases; general course administration costs; and the cost of proctor’s packets and testing materials.

Miscellaneous Costs

Textbooks, supplies, laundry, and incidentals may total $350–$600 per semester, depending, of course, on the individual student.

Health Services

PCC’s Graf Clinic, staffed by medical professionals, provides health care for illness and injury during clinic hours. Resident and non-resident students needing to see the medical doctor may do so at a fee of $15 per visit. Fees incurred for on-campus labs, diagnostic testing, and pharmaceuticals will be applied to the student’s 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.

PCC does not accept responsibility for illness or accident on or off campus and does not accept financial responsibility or provide insurance for students needing emergency medical care, hospitalization, or off-campus medical attention. Students are responsible to provide either their own health insurance coverage or pay the cost themselves. Students use school facilities at their own risk.

International Students

All payments must be in U.S. currency. International students’ accounts will be charged any handling fees assessed by a foreign bank (e.g., transfer funds, etc.). Each semester must be paid in advance. Pensacola Christian College does not provide financial assistance for international students. Under normal circumstances, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service will not permit international students to be employed in the United States off campus to meet their financial obligations. Therefore international students should not depend on obtaining part-time employment to meet their educational expenses. International students should carefully assess their financial resources before finalizing their plans. If the international student is not granted admission, the tuition, room and board, and transportation payments are refundable. United States immigration regulations mandate that no international student should travel to this country without receiving his official letter of acceptance and Form I-20.

Financial Services

Two ATMs (automatic teller machines) have been placed on campus for the students’ banking needs. Any ATM card may be used; however, there is usually a nominal charge for using ATM cards not issued by Bank of America or Regions Bank.

Bank of America and Regions Bank provide discounted banking services to PTS/PCC students. Bank representatives are on campus periodically to assist students in opening new accounts.

All checks to the College for tuition and fees should be made out for the exact amount owed. The College Business Office does not provide banking and check-cashing services.

Cancellation and Withdrawal Policies


Fall and Spring

Any student who does not cancel his reservation at least one week before the formal beginning of the semester for which he is enrolled must pay 25 percent of the full semester’s tuition within 30 days. (Deadline for fall semester is 2 P.M., Monday, August 31, 2015; spring semester is 2 P.M., Monday, January 18, 2016.)

A student whose withdrawal is officially approved and whose departure is before the end of the first three weeks of the semester owes the semester’s tuition according to the following schedule:

During first week—25% tuition

  • Fall Check-in—Sept. 13, 2015
  • Spring Check-in—Jan. 30, 2016

During second week—50% tuition

  • Fall Sept. 14–20, 2015
  • Spring Jan. 31– Feb. 6, 2016

During third week—75% tuition

  • Fall Sept. 21–27, 2015
  • Spring Feb. 7–13, 2016

After three weeks—100% tuition

  • Fall After Sept. 27, 2015
  • Spring After Feb. 13, 2016

A student also owes fees and room and board (if a residence hall student) at a prorated amount based on the length of his stay.


Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours before the beginning of any 2015 summer session to avoid a monetary penalty. The deadline time is 4:30 p.m. CDT on the dates below.

Session I Friday June 19
Session II Tuesday June 30
Session III Monday July 13
Session IV Monday July 27

Any student who does not cancel his reservation by the stated deadlines must pay the full tuition and fees for that session within 30 days.

If a student comes and claims his reservation but withdraws before completing the session, he is responsible for full tuition and fees for the course that session (exception: students taking 2 courses each day—see the Business Office Supervisor).


Whenever a student’s status is changed to “withdrawal” and the student owes money on his account, the money is due upon withdrawal. Interest of one percent per month (12% APR) will be charged beginning 30 days after the withdrawal on the unpaid balance until the debt is paid in full.

Should a student leave the College for any reason after having paid more than the amounts outlined above, a refund is made to him for any overpayment; but no other refund is made to a student for any other reason. No refunds are issued on a student’s account until after the third week of school has been completed.

For a student to withdraw from a class, he must obtain written permission from the Registrar and submit it to the Records Office.

When a student is accepted for fall semester, he is expected to remain a student at the College for both fall and spring semesters of that academic year. The student’s reservation is automatically carried over from fall semester to spring semester within a given school year. Therefore, if a student withdraws at the end of fall semester, he must notify the Seminary-Graduate Studies Office in writing.

Notice of Liability

Pensacola Christian College is not liable for damage to any personal belongings of students under any circumstances including the event of a catastrophe such as, but not limited to, windstorm, flood, hail, riot, riot attending a strike, civil commotion, explosion, fire, smoke, and vehicle or aircraft accidents. Neither is the College liable for theft of personal belongings of students, staff, or faculty members.
