Pearl River drops tuition pricing for Summer 2022

March 29, 2022

Pearl River Community College strives to make education accessible and affordable to students. This summer, affordability has become economical with tuition rates being cut in half. This special offer applies to both full-time and part-time students and requires no extra steps as PRCC’s staff will do the work for you.

This offer is a great fit for someone hoping to get ahead with their coursework, to fill in any gaps needed for graduation, to pick up fully transferrable general education classes closer to home, or to gain new skills that impact employability. 

General education classes being offered in person during the summer include Art Appreciation, English Composition I and II, College Algebra, Intro to Sociology, and World Civilization I and II. Many of these are offered at an accelerated pace compared to the traditional school year. 

Those options plus others like General Biology, General Chemistry, American Literature, Music Appreciation, General Psychology and Public Speaking are offered through eLearning in an online format. Many of the eLearning courses can be completed on the student’s schedule anywhere you have an internet connection. There are set deadlines for work to be submitted and proctored exams may require coming onto a PRCC campus. 


Full-time students taking 15 to 21 credit hours will pay $813 instead of $1,625. Part-time students will pay $70 per credit hour instead of the normal $140 per hour.

This deal is applicable only to summer courses at PRCC. This deal only includes the cost of the course by credit hour. The promotion is for regular tuition paying students only. Promotion does not apply to already discounted programs. Dual enrollment students do not qualify due to their current discounted program.
