Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

Tuition and Fees

No undergraduate student at Eastman pays their full Direct Cost.  Thanks to our generous donors, all students receive a merit award reducing out of pocket expenses.  Please see the Prospective Students page where you will find details about eligibility and criteria for all merit and need based aid.

The official 2017-2018 Schedule of Charges is posted on the University Bursar’s website in the spring. These are the charges that appear on a student’s bill.

All students are required to have health insurance.  If you are not covered under your parent(s) or your own health insurance, then add $2,292 for the University Health Insurance. 

Contact University Health Services regarding waiving the insurance or for any other health insurance questions. 

Contact University Dining Services regarding student dining plans. 

New undergraduate students have a one-time orientation fee of $290.

For information about applying for financial aid for undergraduate students, please visit the Prospective Students page of our website.
