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 $13,700 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 of approximately $10,700 a year, which includes a standard double room and a standard meal plan.

In-State Tuition for Undergraduate International Students

  • Tuition and Registration Fee (24 credit hours): $11,110
  • Insurance (Required for international students): $1,779
  • Room and Board (Housing and meal plan): $12,794
  • Total Estimated Cost for Undergraduate Students: $25,683 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 credit hours per semester for two semesters per year (24 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 example above uses the 2019-2020 rate of $450 per credit hour.
