Alabama Tuition Differential

Education is expensive. That’s why PSC provides Alabama residents, meeting the criteria of physical residence and the establishment of two legal ties to the State of Alabama, a fee that is equivalent to the in-state tuition plus an additional $10.00 per credit hour or credit hour equivalent. To be eligible for the Alabama Tuition Differential, the Alabama resident must have maintained legal residence in the State of Alabama for the twelve months immediately preceding the first day of classes in the term for which the differential tuition assessment is requested. PSC offers a number of programs fully online, and prospective students interested in the assessment of the Alabama Tuition Differential may submit the request for classification as an Alabama Resident in a registration office on any campus.

Virtual Tutoring 

At PSC, students enrolled in math, writing emphasis, beginning physics, or beginning chemistry courses may connect with a tutor in a fully interactive, online environment. Virtual tutors have access to textbooks used in PSC classes, enabling students to ask questions related to homework assignments and other class requirements. If homework is not from a textbook, the student may speak, email, or chat their question to the virtual tutor. After receiving a question, the tutor will work through the problem, prompting the student to answer questions and interact throughout the process. Virtual tutors can address multiple learning styles and will work one-on-one with students in real-time. In late 2017, PSC won the prestigious Bellweather Award for its Virtual Tutoring Service.
