4WARD Graduation Scholarship - Congratulations!

Congratulations on your admission to Eastern Michigan University! And congratulations on qualifying for the 4WARD Graduation Scholarship.

By now, you've seen that you are eligible for one of our Emerald Scholarships. However, we're introducing the 4WARD Scholarship as an alternate option. You can consider opting into the 4WARD Scholarship instead of accepting your Emerald Scholarship.

You will receive your financial aid award letter soon. That letter will include instructions on how to opt in. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please reach out to us via call/text at 734.487.6453 or email at undergraduate_admissions@emich.edu

The Concept

Locked-in Tuition Rate

On-Campus Community Living

Locked-in Housing Rate

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.

Take the first step to securing your 4WARD Graduation Scholarship by applying for admission.

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.
