The Evergreen State College

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

Evergreen is an extremely affordable and cost-effective public school–especially for in-state students. “Our school is one of the only schools offering such an alternative approach to higher education, and might be the only one that does it at state tuition,” says one resident. Others are pleased to discover “the cost of attending this school was a lot lower than I thought,” and that ESC is “the best education for my money.” “I wanted to choose what I was going to spend my time and money on studying, instead of have it chosen for me through pre-requisites.” Most Evergreen students are very active in the community, and internships are usually required. “Since we are so close to the state capital I was given the opportunity to be a student lobbyist for my school and make a difference for access to higher education.” Independent studies and study abroad are features included in many upper-division programs, affording students invaluable real-life experiences.
