Tuition and Fees

Tuition Payment Requirements

Tuition is billed on a quarterly basis. Tuition is generally due at the start of each program quarter. An optional Tuition Payment Plan (TPP) is available which may be subject to a fee and late charges, and which allows a maximum of three payments over the term. Failure to comply with the TPP may result in removal from class. A student with a balance owing on his/her account may not be allowed to continue to the next term.

Due to the duration of the program, the tuition policies described below may not apply to the Professional Truck Driving program. Students enrolled in the Professional Truck Driving program should refer to their enrollment agreement for more information.

Delinquent Accounts

In the event a student’s account is delinquent, the student may be required to pay late fees and all reasonable collection costs, including attorney fees and collection agency fees in accordance with Washington State law. Student transcripts may also be held if an account is delinquent. Students will not receive a certificate of graduation or a degree if they have a balance owing. Any delinquent institutional debt must be cleared prior to re-enrollment.

Returned Check Processing Fee

A charge of $32 is assessed each time a student’s check is returned by a bank withholding payment. In addition, the student may not be permitted to pay by check for any future payments.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

The school will refund all money paid (less exam and registration fees) if the applicant is not accepted. In rare instances where a starting class is cancelled by the school, the school will refund all money paid, including exam and registration fees. The school will refund all money paid (less exam and registration fees) if an applicant cancels after the day the enrollment contract is signed or an initial payment is made, as long as the applicant has not entered class.

If the applicant cancels after the fifth business day after signing the enrollment agreement or making an initial payment, but prior to attending class, the school will retain a cancellation fee of $100.00.

If training is terminated after the student enters class the school will retain 100% of all assessed fees with the exception of lab fees. The school will refund a pro-rated portion of tuition and lab fees based on the following schedule:

If the student completes training through: The school refunds this amount to student:
0% - first 10% 90%
11% - 25% 75%
26% - 60% 50%
More than 60% 0%

The training completion percentage is calculated by dividing the number of scheduled class days through the date of student’s termination by the total number of scheduled class days in the term. When calculating refunds, the official date of a student’s termination is the last actual date of recorded attendance. All refunds will be paid within thirty calendar days of the student’s official termination date.

Any student receiving military, federal or state financial aid who officially or unofficially withdraws from Perry Technical Institute will have funds returned to the appropriate financial aid program based on the regulations governing the program.

Program Cost Breakdown

All fees listed are mandatory and required for the completion of the program. Additional certifications and field trips are optional and costs are assessed separately. Programs may have additional continuing education costs that are required for licensing and/or job placement. The State of Washington does not allow for tax-exemption of items purchased for use in the state, such as books and tools for instruction received in the State of Washington. Book prices do not include shipping costs.
