Peninsula College students voted to assess themselves a graduation fee in 2019. The purpose of the fee is to provide graduation apparel to all students. The ASC adopted the fee to make the commencement ceremony more available to students with limited financial resources. The previous cost of the graduation package was $45-$60 per student.
Student Life Fee
Peninsula College students voted to assess themselves a student life fee in the spring of 2022. That fee pays for student use of the Fitness Center, as well as minor capital improvements for student life, including the Pirate Union Building and the athletic complex.
