The tuition rate is determined by the administration of the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences. Periodically, an in-depth analysis is performed to reevaluate the fee structure. Students may preregister for courses following their acceptance into a given program and prior to paying their tuition. No student may participate in any classroom or clinical experience until tuition is paid in full. Failure to show for a class will not dismiss student financial obligations. Registered students must officially withdraw by completing the Withdrawal/Leave of Absence Form or by contacting the Student Service Center.
