Cost of Attendance

When comparing colleges, cost is often a big factor when determining where to attend. At PCC, we have some of the lowest costs around the country! The cost of attendance is what the College estimates it will cost you to attend PCC for one year. Included in the cost of attendance are two types of expenses:

  1. direct costs* - costs associated with going to school (like tuition, fees, books and supplies) and
  2. indirect costs estimates - costs associated with living (like room and board, personal expenses and transportation). Loan fees if applicable are also included.

The cost of attendance is also important for financial aid recipients because it is used to determine your financial aid eligibility. It is the maximum we can award you in the various types of financial aid.  If you have additional expenses, not covered in your cost of attendance, we may be able to increase it and award additional aid (normally student loans).  The Request for Budget Review form (formerly called Request for Cost of Attendance Review form) will show you what other expenses we can take into consideration. 

Below are estimated figures to help you in your comparison.  All figures are estimates; they can vary from student to student depending on your personal situation. Your personal cost of attendance can be found on your MyPima.
