Tuition Deposit

A $1,000 non-refundable tuition deposit, in two payments, is required of accepted students to indicate the intent to matriculate in to the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy.  A student must remit an initial $200 deposit by the deadline stated in his/her acceptance letter.  To retain his/her proffered seat in the class, by March 1, the student must then provide the remaining $800 deposit to assure their seat for the fall semester.  Upon matriculation, this deposit will be applied to the first semester’s tuition bill. Both tuition deposits are waived for Early Decision applicants.

Financial Aid

For financial aid information, please view the financial aid page for pharmacy students.

Scholarships

Students may apply for a scholarship through the School of Pharmacy. The School of Pharmacy will send deposited students information about applying for a scholarship at the end of the spring semester.

Housing

Off-campus housing is available in the surrounding area.  Students must arrange for off-campus housing individually. Room and board is not included in tuition since off-campus housing is provided by private industry and not Presbyterian College.
