We Invest in You and Your Future

Choosing a Presbyterian College education isn’t just a decision for today; it’s an investment in your future. The value you gain during your time at PC will continue to shape your personal and professional life long after graduation.

You’re probably not even thinking about graduating, but when you do earn your PC degree, you’ll be ready: Our graduates are known for their strong foundation, adaptability, and readiness to excel in their chosen fields. In fact, over the last six years, 97% of PC graduates were either employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

We make a PC education affordable by investing a considerable amount of financial assistance. Why? We believe cost should not keep students from choosing the right college for them.
