Q: How much does PCI cost?
A: PCI is FREE. There is no cost to the student for attending. The EOF/MAP program covers all residential costs, meals, and tuition. The only fees an incoming student will have to pay are the Rowan University fees any incoming freshman would be responsible for (i.e. Admissions deposit, Housing deposit, etc.)
Q: Can I have a car on campus during PCI?
A: Yes; however, you must turn your car keys in upon returning to campus each Sunday. You will receive your keys back prior to check-out each week.
Q: Is it true that I can't have my cell phone??
A: Yes ... It's true. Cell phones are collected on Sundays and returned to you prior to checking out on Thursdays. Cell phones are a distraction from social growth and engagement; preventing students from learning and getting to know others.
Talk to any former PCI student and you'll find that, although it sounds impossible, you will appreciate and understand this rule as you progress and enjoy your PCI experience!
Q: Can I bring my laptop?
A: Yes. We encourage students to bring laptops or tablets due to limited computer lab availability; however, you will not be allowed to use them in the classroom unless approved by your professor.
Q: Can I have visitors during PCI?
A: No. There is no visitation.
Q: When can I go home?
A: You will remain on campus from Sundays through Thursdays and go home on all but one weekend during the program.
