A student’s “Cost of Attendance” (COA), also known as a financial aid budget, is the estimated full and reasonable cost of completing a full year as a full-time student. These Cost of Attendance figures are estimated and can change at any time. Tuition rates are approved annually each February and estimated COA figures are updated at that time.

Tuition and the school fee are charged by term. Tuition rates generally increase by 3 percent (3%) each year. If students are paying any portion of their tuition out-of-pocket, they must make payment to the PCOM Bursar's Office by each term's tuition due dates.
 
Living expenses includes reasonable costs for room (rent, utilities), board (food, groceries, necessities), school-related transportation (car insurance, gasoline, public transit), health insurance, and personal expenses.
 
When loan and scholarship payments disburse, they first go toward paying a student's PCOM tuition and fee charges. Students then receive remaining funds as “refunds” to help them meet their personal living expenses. Visit our Disbursements and Refunds webpage for more detailed information.
