Information on costs of attending Eureka College

Initial admission to Eureka College will be provisional. Once provisional admission is approved, you are required to submit to Eureka College a payment of $1,000. Upon receipt of these funds, your I-20 will be issued in order for you to obtain your student visa. The first payment will cover your deposit, SEVIS fee, orientation, emergency fund, and housing deposit with the remaining going to your student account. A second payment is due prior to the beginning of classes, and the third payment is due before the second semester begins in January. Any reduction in cost due to merit-based scholarships will be taken off the second and third payments.

Should you submit payment and find that you are not able to attend Eureka College, the enrollment deposit of $200 will be retained by the College. The remainder of the funds will be returned to you (minus any costs for transferring funds). If you attend Eureka and the emergency fund is not needed, it will be returned to you on your final departure from Eureka College. You will also need a minimum of $2,000 available for books and supplies for your first year.
