How do I open an Eagle Dollars or Flight Account?

Your Eagle Dollars and Flight accounts are already opened when you are accepted as a student. The easiest way to deposit monies into any of your accounts is through the Eagle Card tab on your Blackboard account. You may also make deposits at the Cashier's Office, via telephone with a credit card, or at any of our three Value Transfer Stations (VTS) located around campus. No cash withdrawals may be made from your Eagle Dollars or Flight Accounts. Cashier's Office hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m .to 4 p.m. Location: Canaveral Hall. Phone: 386-226-6329. Telephone Deposits (with credit card only): 386-226-7578.

How do I pay for the flight training I receive?

After completing the training session, you may pay for your session online through the Education and Training Administration (ETA) system. You may pay with a credit card, debit card, or with your Flight Account through your Eagle Card. The Flight Account is a prepaid debit account where account funds are accessible to pay for flight activities only. Remember, any combination of these payment methods may be used at any time. Students can manage their Eagle Card accounts in Blackboard. Just log in to ERNIE, click on "Go to Blackboard home", and select the Eagle Card tab. Guest deposits can be made by going to Guest Deposit - ERAU Eagle Card. For information on the EAGLE Card or if you have any questions, call Student Accounting (386-226-6983) at any time.

How much will it cost for me to fly?

Embry-Riddle recommends that students and parents budget approximately $15,000 per year for flight fees for the first two years, and approximately $10,000 for the third year of flight. Please take into consideration that prices will vary per student since no two students learn at the same rate.
