Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.73 Average Rating
With only seventy-one dollars per credit hour, it can't be more affordable to receive an excellent education. Moreover, PVCC offers the opportunity to receive certain bachelors degrees from Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University right at their campus, via online and in classrooms so students don't have to relocate to attend either university. Also, there is a convenient on campus daycare, wonderful honors program, and a multitude of affordable extracurricular activities that one would all find at a regular university, except at a much more economical price.
