Tuition and Fees

Tuition Rates including Fees

Per MNSCU policy tuition is due fifteen days prior to the start of the term. For registrations after the tuition due date, payment is due within one week.

Tuition statements are not mailed to students. To view your account or make payments online go to: Student Registration (login provided at orientation is required).

A past-due status on your student account will prevent you from registering.

You have incurred a financial obligation by registering for classes. If you decide not to attend, it is your responsibility to drop your classes. It is accessed the same way as student registration. If you decide not to attend, please do not rely on the "registration cancellation for non-payment" process as a way to drop your classes.

Tuition and Fee Information

For the Financial Aid Office to determine your financial need, we must first establish the costs associated with attending Pine Technical & Community College.

Students attending less than full-time are eligible for financial aid; however, budget, family contributions and maximum awards may be adjusted proportionately for less than full-time attendance.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get an estimate of what it may cost to attend PTCC. The information you receive from the calculator is an estimate of costs and financial aid. The estimate assumes you will be a degree-seeking undergraduate student enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) in fall and spring semesters.

How does the calculator work?
The calculator uses information on the typical cost of attending PTCC, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses. Your actual costs will vary depending on your major, the courses you select and your living arrangements. Using family financial information you enter, the calculator will estimate the amount of grant and scholarship financial aid that similar students received in the previous year.

Getting Started
Using the calculator should take less than ten minutes of your time, assuming you have family financial information available. You will be asked some basic questions about you and your family’s financial situation so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand.
