Since it was first founded nearly 50 years ago, ECPI University has been dedicated to making college affordable for all students. In 2013 alone, we awarded more than $5 Million in scholarships and financial aid. What’s more, ECPI University tuition ranks well below most colleges and universities in Virginia, North Carolina and even nationally.

Nonetheless, paying for college can be a bit daunting. That’s why ECPI University is launching a comprehensive scholarship campaign to help you bridge the affordability gap for a college education. It has been developed to bring awareness to and help as many prospective students as possible and ensure that a college education is affordable for as many people as possible.
