Myrtle Beach Branch Campus

PIA aviation Students

What better place to repair aircraft than the beach? PIA’s Myrtle Beach South Carolina campus is no farther than 5 minutes from the shore, and the area is a hotspot for concerts, shopping and entertainment.

PIA’s Myrtle Beach Campus is located at the International Technology and Aerospace Park, near South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach International Airport. PIA’s airport location provides an ideal atmosphere for aviation training as well as aircraft accessibility to the school’s facilities.

The 26,000 sq ft facility houses classrooms, a student resource center with a computer lab and publications library, and shop areas for aircraft propulsion systems, electricity, sheet metal, hydraulics, instruments & controls, composite materials, non-destructive testing, welding, and painting.

Financial Aid

As you prepare for your education, it’s important to know you’re not alone in navigating your financial plan.

 

Most students depend on a financial plan that incorporates multiple resources. Together, we’ll explore your eligibility for various financial aid programs, loans, grants and scholarships to help you figure out what’s best for your unique situation.

 

Here at PIA, we believe that a high-quality education should be delivered with transparency, including understanding how your investment measures with your earning potential. A stable financial plan should have no surprises, and that’s exactly what you can expect when you meet with the PIA Financial Aid Office.

 

Financial aid is available to those who qualify.

Housing for Students

One of the most common questions I hear in Admissions is ‘Where am I going to live since you don’t have residence halls?’ or ‘Where is my son/daughter going to stay for school and is it safe?’  I remember when I went off to college it was fairly simple because I stayed in a residence hall, but I also remember it was awfully expensive and my parents and I had no control over who I lived with.  While moving to school at PIA isn’t quite as simple as attending a school with a residence hall, you can work to set your sights on a place within your budget.

To make this search easier, PIA provides a list of properties that have been used by PIA students in the past as well as several new listings.  This list is not a recommendation or guarantee by PIA.  In addition, the Internet can also be a powerful tool when searching on one’s own.  All arrangements are between the student and the property manager or owner.  PIA IS NOT INVOLVED IN THESE AGREEMENTS IN ANY MANNER.
