Application Fee and Enrollment Deposit (formerly called 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 Enrollment Deposit, which 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 Enrollment Deposit will be credited to the student’s account on the Sept. 25, 2023/Feb. 19, 2024 statement. The date the Enrollment Deposit is paid determines the amount paid (see below).

$125 + $25 late fee July 1–August 20 | January 1–14

The $4,428 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 $295.20 per hour for credit or $147.60 per hour to audit. Part-time students (taking 11 hours or fewer per semester) are charged at the rate of $369 per hour for credit or $184.50 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. Tuition covers fees for library access, Fine Arts Series, athletic events, yearbook, and collegian and class dues.

Room and Board

The room and board cost ($2,341 per semester) provides residence hall students with housing and meals from each semester’s arrival deadline through the semester’s end date. Students will live in one of seven residence hall buildings. These buildings are furnished with private (or adjoining) bathrooms. Students will also have wireless internet access, room telephones with free local and toll-free calling, and a large laundry room on each floor. With three dining options (Four Winds, Varsity, and Grab N Go) and multiple menu choices, students have a variety of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The PCC room and board plan is a flat rate per semester that cannot be reduced for lack of use by active students.

Health Services Fee

Fees incurred for on-campus labs, diagnostic testing, and pharmaceuticals are 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 hospitals in the area.

International Student Processing Fee

All enrolled international students are required to pay the $100 International Student Processing Fee. This fee is used to pay for specialized services used by and for international students, such as visa processing and compliance reporting required by the Federal Government.

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).

Music Course Fees

Music course fees underwrite the cost for personalized music instruction and are paid by all who are registered for the following courses at the end of the drop/add period:

Private Lessons $175–$350
Group Instruction $87.50–$175
(brass, harp, hymnplaying, percussion, piano, strings, voice, woodwind)
Online Student Services Fee

This $50 fee per semester ($25 for audited courses) covers technology services for online‐learning students including corresponding hardware, infrastructure, and support; individual on‐campus email accounts, access to Eagle’s Nest, and course delivery. In addition, it covers services such as access to online databases, general course administration costs, and the cost of online proctoring.
