PIMS Announces no tuition increase for the 2020-2021 Academic year
The Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science is pleased to announce that it will not be increasing tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Dr. Barry Lease, Program Director and board member communicated that the PIMS Board of Directors, at their most recent meeting, declared that due to the COVID-19 issues we have all faced this year, and the unexpected financial burden it has placed on many current and future students, a per credit tuition increase was not in the best interest of their mortuary education.
PIMS prides itself on providing the best opportunity possible to educate their students; this is just another way to make it happen.
