The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of the educational expenses for the "typical" student. As required by Federal law, Cost of Attendance includes more than the cost of tuition, fees, and books. Peninsula uses one cost of attendance for students who do not live with their parents, and one for dependent students who live with their parents. The figures listed below are for Washington residents enrolled at least half-time (6 or more credits) for three quarters in the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Cost of Attendance is used, along with the Estimated Family Contribution (2), to determine students' financial need. The formula is as follows: Cost of Attendance - Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) = Financial Need

- The Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) is a number prepared by the Federal Processor after financial aid application data (FAFSA) is analyzed.
- Tuition is estimated using Spring 2020 tuition, 15 credits, plus building, fitness and bus pass fees, rounded to the nearest dollar. These amounts are used for financial aid budgeting purposes. For current year tuition rates, please visit: https://pencol.edu/admissions/tuition-and-fees
