Cost of attendance

100% of students who apply for financial aid receive grants or scholarships.

Use this chart to determine the estimated costs for your first year of enrollment at Erikson. Note that these costs reflect estimated expenses for the 2018-19 academic year and do not reflect grants and scholarships that you will receive from Erikson. We award close to $1.6 million in grants and scholarships to our degree and certificate students each year.

The cost of attendance illustration assumes that students will be enrolled in a two-year program and will enroll in the number of credits indicated for the first year of each program. Tuition expenses for students enrolled in the three-year program will be lower since you will enroll for fewer credits in the fall and spring semesters. Summer tuition assumes enrollment in one three-credit class, but may be higher for some programs or for students who choose to take additional courses in the summer term.

Our financial aid promise

At Erikson, we promise that the need-based grant that you receive for the first year of your studies is guaranteed for the subsequent years as long as you maintain good academic standing in your degree program.
