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

3.84 Average Rating
The price is high, but that's to be expected for a private college. I think it is definitely worth every penny to learn what I have learned in and outside of the classroom.
Mariah from Rockville, VA
Eastern Mennonite University is the ideal campus. It is a personable campus with lots of amenities to make the college experience an easy transition from high school and home life.
Justin from Arlington, VA
Expensive, but not for a private school. Lots of scholarship and work-study, not to mention just regular employment, available on campus.
Shelby from Lancaster, PA
EMU is a GREAT school, but it is also really expensive. I wouldn't change my choice of coming here though even though the cost is high! I am definitely getting the education I'm paying for! It is worth the money. I only rate it a 4 out of 5 because for most people in today's economy the tuition can be too high.
