The estimated Cost of Attendance (also known as a student budget) is a guide to help students anticipate the price of attending Embry-Riddle Worldwide for one academic year, and is based on full-time enrollment. The estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) expenses include tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, and the student's living costs while attending school. Undergraduate and Graduate costs are based off of a full-time four-term enrollment period. Each student's cost of attendance is made up of both direct and indirect costs and is also used to determine financial aid eligibilityAdditional fees may apply to some students as each student’s situation is different.

In addition, all tuition amounts and fees are subject to change at any time for correction of errors. Finally, please note that fee amounts billed for any period may be adjusted at a future date.

  • Direct costs are billed through the University and include tuition and fees
  • Indirect costs are not billed through the University but are optional; these out-of-pocket expenses are room and board, transportation, books, supplies, and personal expenses.

Calculate your estimated cost of attendance: A net price calculator is available to help you estimate the cost of attendance as well as the aid you may receive.

The figures below reflect estimated budgets for the current academic year. While your actual costs will depend on a number of factors--including the number of credit hours you take and lifestyle choices — these should assist you in planning your own budget. Refer to this chart to help plan for your academic spending.

It is never too early to start planning for college. Saving money, learning about financial aid, and budgeting for your life as a student are all part of the process. Below is a list of some tools and sources of information that you might find helpful before, during, and after you go to college.

Embry-Riddle-Worldwide provides the Net Price Calculator as a valuable tool for students and families to financially plan for their education.  This online tool will help estimate the amount of financial aid you could be offered and the net amount you may be expected to pay toward the cost of attending ERAU-Worldwide. Upon completion, you will receive a personalized estimate of your family’s net cost after taking your projected financial aid into account.  Your summary will provide you with an estimated overview of your potential university scholarships, federal aid, and estimated costs.

Before you begin, it would be helpful to have these items available:

  • Student and Parent Income Tax Returns
  • Earnings Statements (W2 Forms, Recent Paycheck Stubs)

Please note: In order to receive an official financial aid package, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Net Price Calculator results are based on the current year costs and student aid eligibility requirements. Future costs and financial aid estimates are subject to change. Results of the calculator are not guaranteed and the accuracy of your estimated awards is based on the accuracy of the information you provide on your FAFSA.
