Tuition & Fees

The total cost of one 3 credit hour class is currently $536. For students who have applied and are eligible for the  TSAC Dual Enrollment Grant, the grant provides $300.  The Pellissippi State Scholarship adds another $186. Students taking one 3 hour class at one of our campuses are left with a balance of $50 or $57 for those taking two 3 hour classes. Note, courses such as Physical Education, Applied Music, and others may have extra fees. Students only attending classes at their high school will not have a balance since they are not assessed campus access fees.

Students ineligible for the Dual Enrollment Grant are also ineligible for the Pellissippi State Scholarship.  In order to receive the scholarship students must adhere to the following:

  1. Must select Dual Enrollment on their PSCC application and be admitted with a Dual Enrollment admission type.
  2. Must apply for the Dual Enrollment Grant on the TSAC web site by the 10th day of the semester.
  3. Must be certified as eligible for the Dual Enrollment Grant by the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation.


It is the responsibility of the student/parent to ensure all tuition and fees are paid by the payment deadline as outlined in the enrollment guide and the academic calendar.  Students will not receive a bill in the mail, but may log into their myPellissippi account for details regarding their balance.

Students may pay their balance by logging into myPellissipi or in person at the Cashier's Office.  Balances must be paid in full by the due date to prevent classes from being dropped.  Students whose Dual Enrollment Grants have not been credited to their account by the payment deadline will need to pay out of pocket and be reimbursed.  If it is determined that a student is ineligible for the grant, no refund will be issued.

Financial Aid/Tuition & Fee Waivers

Dual Enrollment students are not eligible for federal financial aid.  Aside from the Dual Enrollment Grant and the Pellissippi State Scholarship mentioned above, students whose parents are University of Tennessee, Tennessee Board of Regents, or State of Tennessee employees may be eligible for a discount, along with children of public school teachers in Tennessee.  Please check here for details and forms.
