Financial Information


Federal regulations require that Elizabeth City State University have documented evidence on file that a student has sufficient financial means to pay all tuition, required fees, and living expenses for him/herself  during the student’s proposed period of study (4 years for a Bachelors; 2-1/2 years for a Masters). A single student will need approximately $19,234.00 to cover tuition, living expenses, and books/required medical insurance for 9 months. A student who plans to remain in the United States in the summer will need an additional estimated $3,000 for living expenses.  A student must have funds available for use upon arrival for tuition, housing, insurance, books, etc. Each semester’s tuition is due in full before the academic term begins.

Financial Aid Resources

Non-immigrant students in the US are not eligible for federal financial aid programs for which US citizens and lawful permanent resident students normally apply. Unfortunately, Elizabeth City State University offers limited financial aid or scholarships for international undergraduate students.

If you are not awarded financial aid by Elizabeth City State University, you may wish to seek additional sources of aid. A list of financial aid resources is provided as a courtesy. We do not guarantee funds availability or financial aid assistance from these resources. The use of this information is strictly at your discretion.
