Undergraduate Students Estimated Cost of Attendance 

As part of Eastern Michigan University's commitment to educating students in a diverse and welcoming environment, EMU will no longer charge international undergraduate students out-of-state, non-resident tuition. Effective fall 2018, all new international undergraduate students will pay in-state tuition.

Introducing the 4WARD Graduation Scholarship for International Scholars

You pay for your first two consecutive years of tuition at a locked-in tuition rate of approximately $13,950 per year (30 credits).

Then EMU will pay for 100% of your next two consecutive years of tuition (30 credits a year).

You’ll live in an on-campus community for each of the four years at a locked-in room and board rate, which includes a standard double room and a standard meal plan.

In-State Tuition for Undergraduate International Students

  • Tuition and Registration Fee (24-32 credit hours): $14,260
  • Insurance (Required for international students): $2,142
  • Room and Board (Housing and meal plan): $13,198
  • Total Estimated Cost for Undergraduate Students: $29,600 per year

International undergraduate students are required to take 12 credit hours per semester to maintain legal F-1 status. This cost estimate assumes a student is taking 12-16 credit hours per semester for two semesters per year (24-32 credit hours per year).

Room and board numbers are dependent on the housing and meal plan options chosen. The example above is for a traditional residence hall and a comprehensive meal plan. The tuition example above uses the 2021-2022 Block Tuition rate and registration fee.
