Tuition and Fees

We know cost is a huge consideration during your college search. Don’t let the ‘sticker price’ fool you! You’ll be surprised how affordable an EMU education really is.

  • Nearly 100% of undergrads receive financial aid.
  • An average assistance package is around $19,000.
  • Close to $10 million in aid was awarded by EMU in 2012.

Parents of current EMUers say the cost of an EMU education – which is priceless – is comparable in the end to that at large public colleges.

Coming Summer 2013

EMU will be implementing a new and enhanced student account management system. This Student Account Center will be used to view student account balances and make payments in one secure location.
