Tuition (per credit hour) is assessed based on course level: lower level undergraduate courses (100-299), upper level undergraduate courses (300-499), graduate level courses (500-699), and postgraduate level courses (700+).
Residency also determines the tuition amount. The Office of Admissions determines residency status based on admissions applications.
Rates are reviewed in June at the Board of Regents meeting.
Non-Refundable Registration Fee
A flat-rate fee assessed for registering in any semester.
Students are still responsible for this fee if they withdraw from the semester.
Late Registration Fee
Assessed in addition to the non-refundable registration fee.
Charged to students who do not register for any courses prior to the official first day of classes each semester.
This mandatory fee (per credit hour) covers facilities, athletics, health center, computer labs, performing arts, and student government.

Student Union Fee
A mandatory fee (per credit hour) charged to service the debt from the new EMU Student Center.

Late Payment Fee
If payment is received after the bill due date, a late payment fee of $45.00 is assessed. Late payment fees will continue to be assessed until the account is paid below $100 or the installment payments are current.
- During the Fall and Winter semesters, students will be automatically enrolled in an installment plan if the bill is not paid in full by the semester bill due date.
- Enrollment in the installment plan breaks the bill into 3 equal installments throughout the semester. The fee for this service is $40.
- At least 25% of the bill must be paid by the semester bill due date in order to avoid a late payment fee.
- A late payment fee will be assessed after each bill due date where the installment amount is not paid or paid late.
- You may log in to ebill.emich.edu to view your installment amounts and the date each is due.
Please note that students may self-enroll in the 4 payment plan before the semester bill due date on ebill.emich.edu. The enrollment fee for the self-enrolled plan is $34.
The LiveText fee is for the internet-based subscription service that allows students and instructors to "create, share, and collaborate on educational curriculum." If requested within 30 days of dated purchase receipt, a full refund will be credited for "UNUSED" LiveText accounts. Any activity history (e.g., authoring, assessing, reporting, sharing, etc.) in a LiveText account implies a "USED" status and, therefore, prohibits the account holder from receiving a refund of any kind.
The fee is charged to students taking private music lessons.
This fee is non-refundable after the first lesson.

Returned Checks and Charge Card Authorizations
When a check or charge card authorization is returned as unpaid from a bank or other financial institution, it will not automatically cancel a student's registration. A $20.00 returned check fee will be assessed to the account and the unpaid balance will be billed back to the account. A request for immediate payment via certified funds will also be mailed.
Holds on future registration, release of transcripts, and other services will be in effect until payment is made via certified funds. Collection action may also be taken until the account is paid if full.
