  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Edinboro University is a wonderful campus that feels like home with friendly staff and well maintained facilities. Higher education is valued very high here and the Nursing program is one of the best. I am proud to be affiliated with this University.
Kaitlyn from Conneaut, OH
Edinboro professors offer a much superior quality than what the university charges in tuition per semester. In my opinion, this is of vital importance when picking a school because it isn't how much you spend, but how much you learn. Despite a lot of downplaying of quality from the local area, Edinboro has established itself as one of the best schools for physically handicapped students with a full support staff to tend to their needs.
James from Erie, PA
I am excited to start attending school here. It seems like a perfect fit for me as the program is accredited, yet I get to do my coursework form home. I can't wait to get started.
