Cost to Attend

We know that cost is an important factor when choosing a college or university. That’s why Eastern Illinois University works hard to keep tuition affordable.

With that in mind, we are here to help. Our Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will assist you in finding and applying for the right scholarships, grants, work-study jobs and/or loans.

During the 2015-16 academic year, 80% of EIU students received financial aid, totaling $107 million. The average financial aid package was $13,582.

*Out-of-State Student. In-State Tuition

Good news. If you're an undergraduate student from any of the states that border Illinois – Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin – there's no extra tuition to pay. You pay the exact same tuition rate as someone from Illinois. (Even if you’re beyond the reach of our neighbor states, but you have an exemplary academic record, you may qualify for in-state tuition.)
