You pay for your first two consecutive years of tuition at a locked-in tuition rate of approximately $13,000 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 & board rate of approximately $10,500 a year, which includes a standard double room and a standard meal plan.
You Pay Tuition
EMU Pays Tuition
The 4WARD Graduation Scholarship offers a 4 year graduation commitment. When you successfully complete 2 years at Eastern Michigan University, we will fund your full tuition for your remaining two years.
*The rates indicated above are locked-in and include 30 credit hours per year for tuition and a standard double-occupancy room. If you choose to move into one of Eastern's other living options (including on-campus apartments) in your junior and senior years, you will pay the current year rates. There is no locked in rate for other living options.
**Note that we still encourage you to file the FAFSA in October to see how you can supplement your payments with student loans and federal financial aid.
We will help you afford to live and learn on campus for 4 years at a guaranteed, locked-in rate to encourage successful 4 year graduation.
