Tuition Calculator
What is included in a program's cost of attendance?

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.

How can enrolled students view their cost of attendance?

Enrolled students can view their current COA figures by logging into their Financial Aid Checklist within myPCOM and visiting the "cost of attendance" section. If a student has an expense greater than any COA line item, they may appeal via a Professional Judgment - Budget Adjustment by contacting the Office of Financial Aid.

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 about three percent (~3%) each year.
