    The relatively low cost of tuition is amazing, and I'm surprised it isn't more, considering how great EMU's academics are.

    EMU is one of the most affordable colleges in the state. They give in-state tuition to Michiganders as well as Ohioans (a very big plus for me), and have scholarships available for whatever your needs are. With my scholarship, EMU pays for the better part of my tuition while I cover room and board. That being said, there are always fees and extra costs that nickel-and-dime you, including $100 per semester for a parking pass, registration fees, etc. In addition, the pricing for tuition, housing, and meal plans were just recently increased. However, itâ??s still more affordable than a number of places.

    It's a great cost and a great education! I think the price is very reasonable for a 4 year college.

    There is a lot of need based aid, but watch out for fees with everything. Room and board is very expensive.
