Cost of Attendance

Cost of attendance (COA) is the estimated amount it will cost to attend doctoral, graduate and certificate programs at PCOM, PCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia.

COA figures include tuition and fees, books and supplies, loan fees and reasonable costs for living expenses (room, board, transportation, health insurance and personal expenses). The COA figures listed below are estimated and subject to change at any time without notice.

Notes

1 Students are charged tuition and school fees each term. If students are paying any portion of their tuition out-of-pocket, they must make payment directly to the PCOM Bursar Office by each term's tuition due dates.

When student loan and scholarship payments disburse to PCOM, they first pay toward a student's tuition and fee charges. Students then receive any remaining funds as “refunds” to help them meet their personal living expenses. Read more about disbursements and refunds.

Tuition rates generally increase by three percent (3%) each year.

2 Estimated health insurance costs are based on a survey of students' expenses conducted by the Office of Financial Aid. Contact the Department of Human Resources for cost information of health coverage offered by PCOM.
