Undergraduate Tuition + Costs

Hornets graduate with lower student debt compared to state and national averages

Flat-rate tuition is just one way we make college affordable.

Emporia State’s flat-rate tuition for full-time on-campus students is one of the best values in the region. In fact, Hornets graduate with less student debt than any other public university in Kansas.

Emporia State extends in-state tuition to select counties in Missouri and Oklahoma.
