Estimated Cost of Attendance 2019-2020

Graduate Accelerated Online Programs Cost of Attendance

Listed below are the cost of attendance figures that the Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships uses to estimate the cost of attending school at Emporia State University. These figures do not represent true costs, or actual costs - they are a budget guideline for awarding financial aid. Tuition/Fees and Room/Board, less any awarded aid, would be owed directly to the university. Billing for actual Tuition/Fees and Room/Board is sent to your student email address prior to the start of each semester.

Enrollment Levels

Because these programs are accelerated, enrollment levels for aid eligibility are different from traditional graduate programs.

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance, which is part of the calculation in determining how much aid you are able to receive, is calculated differently than traditional graduate programs. Tuition and books/supplies are based on the number of credit hours you enroll in and room/board, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses are based upon the number of weeks of instruction you are enrolled in with each part of a term being worth 7 weeks of instruction. The rates per credit hour and week of instruction are as follows:

Rates

Curriculum & Instruction and Educational Administration

Tuition (per credit hour): $312

Books/Supplies (per credit hour): $50

Room/Board (per week of instruction): $314

Transportation (per week of instruction): $47

Miscellaneous (per week of instruction): $68

Loan Fees (fixed): $67

Accountancy and Business Administration

Tuition (per credit hour): $350

Books/Supplies (per credit hour): $50

Room/Board (per week of instruction): $314

Transportation (per week of instruction): $47

Miscellaneous (per week of instruction): $67

Loan Fees (fixed): $55

Awarding Aid


Assuming that a student has completed all requirements necessary to be awarded aid, our office will award the student based on the hours and weeks of instruction enrolled at the time of awarding for all terms within the aid year (summer through spring). Any changes to a student's enrollment will result in revisions made to the student's awarding and the student will be notified of the revision via email.

Disbursement Dates


Disbursement of aid can occur no earlier than 10 days prior to a student's first start date of class. For example, suppose that the first part of the fall term begins August 20 and the second part of the fall term begins October 15. If a student is enrolled in the first part of the fall term, then the earliest disbursement date of aid would be August 10. However, if the student did not enroll in the first part of the fall term, but instead enrolled in only the second part of the fall term, then the earliest disbursement date would be October 5.
