Financial Assistance

PCC realizes that you and your family may have been impacted financially during the pandemic. We want to make college accessible and affordable—so our tuition is already the lowest you will find anywhere for a top-tier Christian academic institution. But in these unprecedented times, we are taking additional extraordinary steps to help every student financially.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Freeze

For the 2020–2021 school year, tuition will not increase but will remain frozen at the 2019–2020 tuition price for all new and returning students. (Room & Board and other fee rates will apply as listed in the 2020–2021 catalog.)

12-Month Payment Plan

To help personal budgeting with lower monthly payments, an optional 12-month payment plan for tuition, room and board is available for all full-time undergraduate students during the 2020–2021 school year—6 monthly payments per semester. This payment plan is interest-free and has no enlistment fee. You may choose either the 8- or 12-month payment plan at the time of your first payment, which is due no later than August 1. (Fees due according to catalog schedule.)

Students who have opted into the 12-month payment plan will only pay $500 for the first tuition payment each semester, and the remaining semester balance will be divided over the next 5 payments.

International Student Payment Plan

International students can choose to pay 50% of their college bill at the beginning of each semester and pay the remaining balance at midterms.


Throughout the 2020–2021 school year, students awarded scholarships on the 8-month payment plan will see the scholarship benefits reflected evenly on each tuition payment.

For students enrolled in the 12-month payment plan, the first payment of each semester will be $500, with the scholarship award divided among the remaining 10 payments.

Fourth Year Tuition-Free

Students enrolling in the Fourth Year Tuition-Free program will have the option to pay the $500 enlistment fee over the fall 2020 semester payments. To enroll, contact your enrollment advisor.

12-month payment plan: Since your first semester payment is a fixed rate, the $500 enlistment fee will be evenly divided over the remaining 5 semester payments.

8-month payment plan: For students who have not opted into the 12-month payment plan, the $500 enlistment fee will be evenly divided over the 4 semester payments.

Textbook Credit

One of the biggest additional costs is books and supplies. To help ease that expense, every student will receive a $200 textbook/supplies credit for use at the PCC Textbook Sale and Campus Store at the beginning of the fall 2020 semester.

50% off Room and Board Options

New Incoming Students: Coming to college for the first time is a major financial adjustment. To help with initial semester costs during the fall 2020 semester, new incoming students will receive 50% off room and board.

Current Students with Fourth-Year-Free: Students with Fourth-Year-Free can defer 50% of the 7th semester’s room and board cost. The money deferred will be frozen at the fall 2020 room and board rate and will be deferred until the student's 7th semester.*

Current Students without Fourth-Year-Free: Students without Fourth-Year-Free will be able to defer 50% of the fall 2020 room and board cost until 6 months after their graduation date.*

To take advantage of the 50% off room and board for the fall 2020 semester, contact the financial aid helpline.

*If students choose to withdraw before their graduation date, the deferred room and board payment is due in full immediately.
