Tuition & Fees - Credit Courses

We know that you'll need to create a plan for how to pay for college. Here you will find everything you need to know about tuition and fees for credit classes.

Pima provides a variety of options to pay for your tuition, fees, and course materials including financial aid, veteran's benefits, and scholarships.

The College also offers an optional payment plan that may be beneficial to you.

Pima charges additional tuition, known as differential tuition, for courses that are more costly for the College to run. Learn more about differential tuition.
