Tuition, Fees & Financial Aid

Your Pillar College education is a transformative investment, and we’re here to help.

Why is a college education an investment?

Former Harvard University President Derek Bok once stated to syndicated columnist Ann Landers, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” While a college education does teach you to write effectively, think critically, speak persuasively and solve problems (Ottley, 2016), there is also the financial aspect that should be considered.

Would you be willing to invest $22,000 per year over a four-year period on a return of $2.6 million? Or even $3.1 million? According to College Board, a Bachelor’s degree is worth about $2.6 million while a Master’s degree is worth about $3.1 million over a working career. And while greater income potential is critical, the benefits of having a college degree go well beyond finances – as Confucius once famously stated, (it helps you to) “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Choose Pillar College, and learn how you can have a better life through a Christ-centered education.

Financial Policies and Procedures

Pillar College is committed to providing an excellent cost-effective education for its students. Tuition and fee rates, payable each semester, are set annually according to economic conditions within the college and industry standards.

Tuition and Fee Rates per Semester - Undergraduate

*Note: For the LEAD program, tuition is determined at the cohort start date and remains the same (frozen) for the duration of that program for LEAD courses. Courses taken outside of the LEAD program are charged at the then current tuition rates. Enrollment in a LEAD term financially obligates the student for the entire four class semester; LEAD is taken term-by-term, not course-by-course.

Undergraduate General Semester Fees: Fees are non-refundable, not pro-rated, and apply to all students.

Registration Fee $105
Online Services Fee $105
Media Lab Fee $105
Student Activity Fee $35
