Tuition and Fees

Residential Campus Tuition and Fees

Fall / Spring Tuition

Students registering for coursework during the spring or fall term totaling 12-16 credit hours are billed according to a “block tuition” rate. Registration for coursework equaling 1-11 credit hours is charged on a per-credit-hour basis. Students whose undergraduate course loads during fall or spring semesters are greater than 16 hours are charged the semester rate plus a per-credit-hour charge for those credit hours over 16.

A student with 28 or more completed credit hours and a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher may register (with advisor written approval) for up to 18 credit hours in a fall or spring semester, with no increase in tuition for hours over the block. Registration for credit hours over 18 will be charged at the per credit hour rate. Registration for the additional credit hours above 17 must be completed at the Office of the Registrar. The completed credit hours and cumulative GPA will continue to be calculated until the semester start date. A preregistered student’s tuition may be recalculated if there is a change in the cumulative GPA or number of completed credit hours. Summer tuition rates are determined solely by the number of credit hours per term. Each summer term is billed separately.

Detailed tuition rates are described in the current academic year financial insert or http://prescott.erau.edu/admissions/estimated-costs/index.html.

Anticipated Financial Aid will place a deferment on your account for the amount awarded.

Any student whose tuition and fees are paid by a third party, (Foreign Embassy, U.S. Government, Trust Account, sponsor etc.) is considered a Sponsored student. Formal arrangements for sponsor payments should be made with the Cashier's office. Veteran’s Education benefits are obtained by contacting the Veteran’s Affairs Office. Cashier's will invoice a third-party sponsor on behalf of a student, however, if the sponsor does not pay by the terms stated on the invoice, the student will be held responsible for the balance due.  The student will be subject to all collection proceedings which include registration, diplomas and transcripts holds.

Hourly Flight Rates

Rates vary by type of aircraft or simulator. Please see the financial insert applicable to your campus for specific rates.

Payment for Flight Instruction

The University uses a cash-basis payment method for all flight instruction. Payment is required at the completion of each training session.  If your method of payment cannot be processed for whatever reason, the training session will be charged to your student account. A hold may be placed on your flight or student account until this transaction is paid.  Any further instruction, not already scheduled, will be suspended until payment is received.  

Acceptable forms of payment are Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), electronic check, guaranteed anticipated Financial Aid or funds that have been deposited to your Flight Dollar Deposit account.  Any combination of these payment methods may be used at any time. Flight payments made by credit card will be assessed a 2.85% processing fee.

Payment for Helicopter Instruction

The University uses an outside contractor to provide helicopter flight training.  Payment is made "Pay-As-You-Go" to the University.   Eaglecard UHI dollars are the only accepted form of payment.  Students are required to deposit adequate funds in order to start training.

Flight payments made by credit card will be assessed a 2.85% processing fee.

Room and Board

Room and Board fees may be incurred each semester by students attending the Prescott Campus and should be used when estimating the cost of attendance. Freshman students may be required to live in University-managed housing and participate in the Embry-Riddle Dining Services meal program. A variety of meal plans are offered that may be supplemented with the Eagle Card to suit individual needs. Please refer to the campus financial brochure for the appropriate campus for current options, requirements, and costs.
