At Presbyterian College, you can receive all the benefits of a small, private liberal arts institution at the cost of a large flagship public school.

Affordability is great, but what about value? Over the last six years, 99% of PC graduates were either employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation, demonstrating that employers and graduate schools across the country recognize the value of a PC degree and all that it encompasses.

Financial Aid

Financing your college career is a collaborative effort – merit scholarships, on one hand, help tackle the overall cost of your college degree, leaving financial aid to help cover the remaining balance. 100% of the Class of 2021 received financial assistance, including scholarships, non-repayable grants, educational loans, and part-time work-study.

To be considered for any need-based financial aid (including grants and loans), you should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Payment Plans

Investing in your future one payment at a time. Rather than paying for tuition and fees in one lump sum, Presbyterian College offers three different payment plans that you and your family can use to chip away at the costs of an academic year through monthly payments. These plans are available to all students and are as follows:

  • 10-Month Plan (opens in May)
  • Fall Plan (opens in May)
  • Spring Plan (opens in October)
