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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

2.80 Average Rating
At Pima Community College the teachers are extremely qualified and teach you personally. You can get a great education here, and join many of the programs they offer, such as the medical center, for a tuition less than half of what an university charges. And since the schedule creation is in your hands, you can transfer or earn your associates degree in record timing by taking full time credit hours.
Tanya from Oro Valley, AZ
Put simply: Pima costs about $55 per credit hour (as of fall 2009).
Parking is free.
Tutoring help is free.
The clubs are free.
Most events that come with food only cost $5.
Mark from Tucson, AZ
As someone said before it's $55ish per credit. If you get financial aid AND go full time here, you will still have a lot of money left over after paying classes, and buying books. Free tutoring, free WIFI, free Foosball table (lol)
Cynthia from Tucson, AZ
So if you decide to go to PCC first, before you head off to an university lots of props to you. Not only is it more economically smart but you can get done faster that way. So well at Pima take your general ed for the major you want to take. This is better then doing it at the university because not only will it be a WHOLE lot cheaper but you have smaller classes that will be more focused and student- teacher relations are better.
