If you decide not to complete your Degree Program, PNC will refund you a minimum of $1200.00 from tuition fees you pay above the first $2320.00 paid (This figure does not include the scholarships that may have been paid on your behalf.) You may also transfer into the Certificate program.
Through this method, whenever possible, we help you meet the PNC goal to have you graduate with the ability to offer Organic Psychology skills along with no debt or loans to pay back. This relieves the otherwise common stress of entering questionable work situations in order to pay debts rather than to apply your Organic Psychology skills where they will do the most good. It allows you to enter professional relationships many other graduates can not afford to enter. Some programs similar to PNC run $40,000.00 for the Masters.
Your portion of the total tuition is due before you are eligible to take your written comprehensive exam and complete your degree program. Other arrangements may be made by special contract with PNC and may involve additional fees to cover administrative cost.
