Q. How much will it cost for me to attend Pike-Lincoln Technical Center?

A. For our daytime classes other than Practical Nursing and Paramedic, the tuition is $7,000 to go a full day for one school year (900 clock hours) or $3,500 for a half day. (Books and fees are in addition to the stated tuition.)

For our Practical Nursing class, the total cost including books and fees is approximately $15,700.

In addition, we offer a Paramedic course that meets one full day per week but requires the student to perform additional work outside the classroom. The total cost including books and fees for the Paramedic course is $7,650. Almost all students qualify for some financial aid which significantly reduces these amounts. Pike-Lincoln Technical Center is also an eligible post-secondary institution to receive Missouri A+ scholarship monies from A+-eligible students.

Please note that our costs are set each year and are subject to change. For exact pricing, please contact the adult education department.
