Tuition Policies

At UPC, we foster a transparent tuition management. Tuitions are adjusted annually, taking into account the country's inflation rate. These adjustments are usually made in the first tuition payment every year*.

UPC's tuition model considers five payments per academic term, according to the category assigned, and the enrollment fee at the start of each academic term**. Additionally, it includes the following benefits:

  • Direct family member discount: UPC offers the possibility of a special discount if the student has a direct relative (sibling, child, spouse) enrolled in the undergraduate or Working Adult programs during the same term in which he/she enrolls. This discount consists in being assigned to a lower category, prior application to the Admission Office upon enrollment.
  • UPC has agreements with several institutions that offer our students financing alternatives: Pronabec, IPFE and Lumni.

Remember that to be able to enroll, it is important that you remain in good standing with your tuition payment.

* All tuition payments for 2018 will have a 4% increase against last year.

** From 2014-0 on, tuition considers an enrollment fee. This amount is applied only to students who entered the university from 2014-0 on and is effective only for the first tuition payment of the academic term and summer courses (for summer courses, only 50% of the enrollment fee). The enrollment fee established for the 2018 academic terms is S/ 305.00 and for the summer courses S/ 147.50.
