Program course sequence

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.
