Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Its not expensive at all and you feel good about your education.
Lindsay from Ada, OK
I think that what Ada has to offer with East Central University, I do get a bang for my buck. I pay for my own classes and I think that each professor has made me more aware of the learning environment that this college has to offer.
Whitney from Stonewall, OK
There are tons of scholarship opportunities here and I have been lucky enough to not have to pay for any of my education. Even if I did have to pay my own tuition, though, I believe it would be well worth it.
Marissa from Seminole, OK
ECU is a cheap school with all the amenities of a bigger college. We have the same sports teams, student organizations, festivals and fraternities/soroities a bigger college has, but at a fraction of the tuition. It is a small college though, in a fairly small town. Also, the dorms are a toss-up. The rooms are quite big, and the nice dorms (Knight, Briles) are very nice, but the bad dorms (Pesagi, Pontotoc) are pretty bad.
Mary from Paden, OK
Compared to other colleges around, ECU is definitely the best option for low price but you still get a quality education.
