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

3.68 Average Rating
As an AE student, I felt the value was excellent. The engineering student body is very tightly knit, and the friends you meet here will be your friends forever. The classes are generally well-structured and enjoyable. Overall, my experience was great!
Nate from Southern California
As said before, this school does not sell one short on education! The school is a bit on the pricey side but I would not go any where else. The atmosphere of aviation meets engineering, location where seasons occur, teachers who are dedicated non-stop, and the indispensable education make this college an extreme bang for the buck.
Laura from Cave Creek, AZ
Since this school is Aviation based it can be quite pricey. If you are planning on flying you can almost double your tuition. However, they do have great scholarships and financial aid if you need help. The money that you spend will not be wasted at this school.
Sheldon from Mission Viejo, CA
The college is expensive due to the fact that it is a private college, but students get a great education for their money. As the top aeronautical college prospective employers know that the students that attend Embry Riddle know their stuff.
Sarah from Chino Valley, AZ
I am not going to lie, Embry-Riddle is a very expensive school. However, it is considered the Harvard of the Sky. There are some employers that, if they see Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University on an application it is an automatic interview... or at least you get put into the pile of only four applications instead of the pile of 100 applications. The community of Embry-Riddle is so tightly woven that if there is an Riddle graduate already working at a company you would like to work for it is relatively easy to be introduced and have a contact. That is one of the amazing things that you get when you are an Embry-Riddle student.
Kathryn
Being a lonely high school student without any trust-fund to speak of, when I saw the cost of tuition I suffered a bit of sticker shock; however, in spite of the large cost, I feel that this school will be more than worth it. They have plenty of opportunities for students to be paid for extracurricular projects and the school actually helps you get summer internships back home (they even give you mock interviews).
Amanda from Boonsboro, MD
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is not the cheapest university, but the education received is worth the tuition. The professors are experienced, the campus is small, and the quality of information given is top notch. One in every four pilots are said to be an Embry-Riddle graduate. The education here is not standard by any means. It is all hands on, detailed information and students must be willing to work hard to succeed.
Anna from Fountain Hills, AZ
This school undeniably leaves a hole in the wallet with the cost of 42k a year, 21k per semester, but is definitely worth the bang. The atmosphere of the school, classes, and friendly people make it worth the while. The fact that many advanced programs such as Matlab, Linux, wind tunnels, and labs are available to students of all grades from freshman to sophomores.
