Understanding financial aid shouldn't require a degree in physics or accounting, which is why Eastern works hard to demystify the process and the numbers. Discover how we compare to the national and state averages, and discover how Eastern can help you afford the degree you need for the job you want.

It's just one more reason we're the best education value in Washington state.
