Piedmont Community College (PCC) students, along with community college students statewide, will see their tuition increase for the 2012-2013 academic year. During its current session, the NC General Assembly approved an increase of $2.50 per credit hour for both resident and non-resident students. The increase is effective July 1, 2012.

The per credit charge for resident (in-state) students will increase from $66.50 to $69, up to a maximum per semester of $1,104, based upon 16 credit hours of instruction. Non-resident (out-of-state) tuition will increase from $258.50 to $261 per credit hour, up to a maximum per semester of $4,176, based on 16 hours of instruction.
