The cost to attend Ecola varies based on the student's financial aid and the meal plan chosen. For 2018-2019, the average cost of attending is about $9,053.

Example 1: A student who wishes to purchase Meal Plan A and pay for the year in advance, will receive a 7.5% discount, and pay a total of $9490.50 for tuition, housing, meals, and facilities ($8771.77 for Meal Plan D).

Example 2: A student who wishes to reduce costs as much as possible can purchase the least expensive meal plan (Meal Plan D), join the work-study program, and apply for the full amount of need-based scholarship ($600). In this configuration, a student could reduce their out-of-pocket costs to about $7,600.
