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

3.76 Average Rating
Embry-Riddle has a very high cost of tuition. However, the University offers so many opportunities for the students that it is definitely worth attending. There is a career fair every fall held by the school that brings in top aerospace companies from across the country and all of them are looking to hire students for internships and co-ops.
Meagan from Hagerstown, MD
Even though Riddle is an expensive place to be, it's worth every penny. Riddle is all around an incredible place to be and you truly get what you pay for. All the labs on campus are top of the line, all the equipment used is brand new and anything you could ever possibly need is available for you somewhere on campus.
Josh from Boynton Beach, FL
Riddle is the best institution in the world for Aerospace engineering majors by far. Everyone will tell you its expensive but its definitely worth it. I have personally talked to Senior Aerospace Engineers and recruiters for Boeing and other Aerospace giants. Riddle is the place to be.
Darryl from Atlanta, GA
riddle is a private school, so it definitely is not cheap. however, you do get what you pay for. the professors here know what they are teaching, and enjoy teaching. job placement out of riddle is especially high, and riddle graduates are looked highly upon by companies such as boeing, spacex, northrop-grumman, and many others.
Melanie from Crystal River, FL
You are paying for a reputation, a reputation that is well known through the aviation industry. I had an english professor who owned a flight school off campus and he was in the process of hiring a CFI. He had 3 people apply for the job... one person with over 2,000 hours, another person with a degree from a local flight school with 1,000 hours and finally there was a ERAU graduate with less then 500 hours. Who do you think got the job? Having a degree from ERAU exemplifies the quality of your education, and makes you as a student highly marketable after graduation because of the schools reputation. Yes it is expensive, but think of it as an investment in yourself. And it should not be long until your investment, pays off.
Amanda from Warwick, RI
ERAU is rated as the top school, ahead of the United States Air Force Academy, as the best aerospace school. This reputation of its says a lot about their curriculum and studies.
Zachary from Stockett, MT
The embry-riddle name is a great asset to have on your application - many companies will hire you just on the fact that you made it through the school; however, the cost does not mean you will always have a state-of-the-art education experience. Often you will find yourself in charge of your own education, having to learn on your own. Also, there is very little - if any - financial aide. The engineering classes are worth the money (if you get a good teacher), but classes in other departments are WAY overpriced. Remember that YOU are the one paying for it and the teachers and staff WORK FOR YOU. Make sure they are working hard for their money and take advantage of every resource available!!!
Bryant from South Daytona Beach, FL
embry-riddle is worth every penny. the curriculum is a great, the campus life is great, but the best part of all is that the teachers do care about how their students are doing. if they see you having trouble, then expect an email or call from you instructor to verify that you are alright.
Angelo from New York, NY
i recommend having a scholarship if planning to attend here while it can be costly it is more than worth it especially for the flight program
Dwayne from Jacksonville, FL
ERAU definitely gives you bang for the buck! ERAU is a higher cost school and worth every cent! ERAU offers strong academic options and attracts major aerospace and industry employers. ERAU hold career fairs each semester. Most ERAU students are hired into the industry following graduation.
