Eastern Online is an affordable option that allows you to study where you want, when you want.

Tuition Rates

With one of the lowest costs for tuition in Washington State, an online degree from EWU is an excellent value!

Online courses are offered in two ways, which affects the cost of tuition. Some courses are offered under the normal tuition rates, while others are offered at a per-credit cost that is not apart of the 10 to 18 credit full-time tuition rate.


Section 25

These courses are offered under normal tuition rates. Tuition is charged per-credit, up to 10 credits. Students can take 10 to 18 state-support credits for the 10-credit price. In-state resident and non-resident tuition rates apply.

Section 27-28

Students at the Cheney and Riverpoint campus (must be designated as such in EagleNET) taking a general online course will pay the normal tuition rates.

State-Support Tuition Rates


Section 75-80

Self-support courses have rates that depend on the type of course and student taking the course. Students who are considered online or off-campus students on EagleNET and students taking courses that are part of an online degree or certificate will be charged a per-credit tuition cost. Self-support tuition is not part of the 10 to 18 credit discounted tuition rate. Students in self-support courses are charged the in-state tuition rate.
