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

3.60 Average Rating
Considering that this is the best CSU system school, and -IMHO- WAY nicer than UConn, this is really a steal. I might not even need to go into too much debt, which is a lifesaver in this economy.
Miles from Storrs Mansfield, CT
Considering this is a state school and it is not too costly, the buildings, especially the dorms and library, are of very high quality. They are new and very up to date.
Jennifer from Guilford, CT
I love Eastern, it's affordable and definitely my home.
Gabriela from Middletown, CT
eastern definietly does not over charge you fro education like some schools. the cost is fair and well worth it to get your degree here.
A bit expensive in tuition as is the case at all universities, but professors don't assign their own hundred-dollar books that are revised every year for double the cost for the sake of a sentence or two.
Shannon from Manchester, CT
A cheaper school that offers a TON of things for students. Very well worth it.
Kaitlyn from Shelton, CT
It's definitely worth the price!
It is a state college so you are getting a good education for much cheaper then other private colleges
Brianna from Putnam, CT
Eastern provides a great selection of courses, activities, and resources for a great price.
Heather from Willington, CT
You get a lot of cool things included in your tuition price. There is more than 1 place to eat here on campus and for the other places that isnt free, included in your meal plan you get dining dollars that you can use to eat at othe places besides the dining hall. Also part of your tutition goes towards your residence hall and you can plan what you wanna do with that many, ranges from trips to Eastern Apparel.
