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.

It all depends on which degree you are after. Eastern is great for Education majors.

John from Southfield, MI
Your going to be spending thousands of dollars so why not get your money worth and get those good grades so you can get your desired degree.
DeAujejuan from Westland, MI
As far as money goes, Eastern is a good choice. The tuition is lower than a lot of other options and with commuting, it is even cheaper. The university also puts out ample opportunities for scholarships.
Madeline from Saline, MI
With a variety of academic, athletics, and merit-based scholarships and grants available, Eastern Michigan can be an affordable option for many. Graduate assistantships can also make earning an advanced degree very cost-effective. Ohio residence share in-state tuition rates with Michigan residents which is an added perk!
Stephanie from Toledo, OH
At EMU you get to experience being a part of a division 1 school that isn't very expensive.
Mr Spearman
Eastern is the only college in the state of MI that has their price of tuition increase lower than everyone else. The dorms are nice, the food is good, and the teaching is excellent.
Tyler from Osseo, MI
One of the cheapest Universities that I looked into and it is one of the best experiences I have ever had. Plus financial aid has paid for all of my schooling with the exception of aviation costs (which is a very expensive major to get into).
Zachariah from Bloomville, OH
yes, EMU is expensive but the financial aid office helps you get your financial aid ready and applying for scholarships. EMU also offers many services to help you, including a career center which helps you with choosing a career later helping you apply for scholarships.
