Tuition and Fees

Graduate students are responsible for ensuring their tuition and fees are paid in full each semester in accordance with the deadlines published by the Cashier’s Office.  Students who are awarded fellowships, scholarships, or assistantships may still be required to pay out-of-pocket balances if the awards did not cover the total tuition and fees balance.

Graduate students can find information regarding tuition, fees, billing and deadlines for each term on the website of the Cashier’s Office. Graduate students are considered full-time if they are enrolled in 9 graduate credits or more.

The “Important Dates” document

  • The Cashier publishes a document each semester titled Important Dates and it contains the dates when accounts must be paid in full or schedules are at risk of cancellation and the date a processing fee is added to your account. Look for this on the Cashier’s main website.
  • There is a new Important Dates document for each semester.
  • The document is on the Tuition and Fees page of the Cashier’s website.

Total Cost of Attendance

The total cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it will cost a student to attend ECU for a given academic period (Fall, Spring & Summer). The COA includes tuition & fees, room & board estimates, books & supplies, transportation, loan fees, and personal expenses. The COA for a graduate student is different than an undergraduate student or a medical student, for example.
