Tuition and Fees
Tuition for non-credit courses is a flat fee amount per course you will find listed on each individual course page. Prices vary based on the length of the course, complexity of the subject matter, and contact hours spent in class. Each Non-Credit course page will provide you with details on the price, schedule, delivery format, location, course description, and prerequisites (if applicable). Payment 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 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.
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, Winter Session), regardless of how many courses you decide to take. This fee will be visible during the checkout process. Learn more about Undergraduate fees and Graduate fees.
