PAYING FOR SCHOOL

COSTS AND AID
 

Your Money's Worth

At Utah State University Eastern, you'll earn a top-notch university education without burying yourself in insurmountable piles of debt. USU Eastern provides lower division and career and technical education courses using a lower tuition schedule. 

Estimate Your Tuition

Take advantage of USU Eastern's low tuition rates to get a jump start on your higher education. Complete a certificate or associate's degree program at USU Eastern's lower tuition rates, then finish your education with a bachelor's, master's or even doctorate degree at the campus you have come to love.

Residency Calculator

Residents of Utah pay a different tuition rate than nonresidents. Generally speaking, if you have lived in Utah for the last 12 months and graduated from a Utah high school, you will be considered a resident for tuition purposes. It can get a bit more complicated than that so use our residency calculator. Please note, this tool is not an official way to determine residency. If you need something official, apply or contact us.
