Tuition and Fees
Non-credit course (course numbers that begin with a CE prefix) tuition is a flat fee amount per course you will find listed on each individual course page. Each Non-Credit course page will provide you with details on the price, schedule, delivery format, location, course description, and prerequisites (if applicable). Payment by credit card is due at the time of enrollment and may be paid online during the checkout process.
Undergraduate and Graduate Credit Courses
All credit-bearing courses charge tuition based on an hourly tuition rate calculated by the number of academic units (credit hours) assigned to a course. The majority of Emerson courses offer 4 credit hours, but each course on our website will indicate the specific number of credits and the calculated tuition rate so you will know upfront how much your course will cost. Tuition rates for undergraduate (courses numbered 100-499) and graduate courses (courses numbered 600-699) are determined on an annual basis for the College. Payment by credit card is due at the time of enrollment and may be paid online during the checkout process. During the summer semester, undergraduate courses are significantly discounted from the regular academic year rates, so it's a great time to catch up, get ahead, or make progress towards your learning goals.
Payment is due at the time of enrollment and may be paid online with a credit card during the secure checkout process.
For students enrolling in undergraduate or graduate courses, Emerson charges a $35 registration fee assessed once per part of term (for example - Summer Session 1, Summer Session 2, Full Term), regardless of how many courses you decide to take during that part of term. This fee will be visible during the checkout process. Learn more about Undergraduate fees and Graduate fees.
Financial Aid and Scholarships
Courses taken through Professional Studies are not eligible for financial aid. Only academic credit-bearing programs such as an undergraduate or graduate degree or credit-granting certificate may be eligible for aid. More details may be found on the U.S. government's Federal Student Aid website. Scholarships are not available for individual courses or non-credit certificates. However, scholarships may be available for students pursuing a Graduate Certificate, Undergraduate Degree, or Graduate Degree program. To discuss scholarship opportunities, applicants should check with their Admissions counselor to discuss any financial assistance that may be available.
