When considering associates degrees or certification programs, cost is a big issue


Here are three important facts to consider when you are looking at PTI's tuition.

  1. No fees. Your tuition doesn't increase with the addition of fees. At PTI, there is no application fee, no technology or computer lab fee, no university services fee, no activities fee, and no graduation fee. Fees at other schools can add thousands of dollars to the stated tuition price.
  2. No tuition increase. Your tuition will not increase from one year to the next. When you select a program and a start date, you will know your total tuition for the entire program of study, provided you do not interrupt your studies.
  3. No out of state tuition premium. If you live outside Pennsylvania, you do not pay a higher tuition. All students in the same program who start at the same time pay the same tuition, regardless of where they live.
