Financial Assistance

We know cost is a huge consideration during your college search. You’ll be surprised how affordable an EMU education really is.

  • Nearly 100% of undergraduate students receive financial aid.
  • An average assistance package is approximately $30,000.
  • EMU awarded more than $14 million in aid to undergraduate students in 2015-16.

Parents of current EMU students say the cost of an EMU education is comparable in the end to that at large public colleges. And 1:1 financial counseling from caring staff results in decisions you are comfortable with, that are right for you and your family.
