Cost of Attendance


2014-2015 Cost of Attendance Budget

ETSU's estimated cost of attendance is an average figure used to determine your financial aid eligibility. The cost of attendance estimated total dollar amount is an average amount of standard expenses such as: tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, travel, and miscellaneous expenses. 

Your actual costs may differ. Tuition and Fees are subject to change by the Tennessee Board of Regents without Notice. Please keep in mind additional charges may occur when you register for certain courses.

Academic year is defined as Fall and Spring, however, if a student chooses to attend summer school, graduate school, Regents Online Degree Program (RODP), Study Abroad, or attend another school the cost of attendance is increased to allow for the expenses. Furthermore, the cost of attendance is decreased if you receive a Disabled Persons and Persons Over 60 Years of Age or older, who enroll for credit courses. (Federal Financial Aid does not pay for auditing courses or allow for it in the cost of attendance.)
