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.

The tuition and prices are a little more expensive than I had hoped but, I don't regret spending the money it is worth it!

The tution cost is relatively low compared to the level of teaching you will recieve. Emporia State university is among the top best teaching schools in the nation. Allowing for more bang for your buck. Taking advantage of the low prices to attend will land you in great classes allowing you to get everything you need to excel.
dakota from Gilmer, TX
With Flat rate tuition students can take as many classes as they want for one flat rate. It makes it nice if you take a lot of credit hours.
Tiffani from Hoyt, KS
It is worth every penny. For a state university, it is relatively cheap also.
Nicole from El Dorado, KS
ESU gave me enough scholarships that I haven't had to pay for college yet. There's always free events and free stuff to do, te education is solid, and it's a great place to be. It's worth every penny, and is one of the cheapest schools in the Midwest. Considering they have such awesome business, education, nursing, theatre, and other programs, it's a great value.
