Costs and Calendars

Aviation Maintenance Science Course Costs

While taking FAA-designated Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) courses, your tuition and fees are different than when you complete University academic courses. All other costs, including on-campus housing and meal plans, will follow the University tuition and fees. The A&P courses are structured on a four semester timeframe, with an estimated cost of $808 per credit hour. The additional specialization in Avionics Line Maintenance will take another semester to complete at the same $832 cost per credit hour.

Additional costs include tools, estimated at $2,000, and FAA Certification Exam fees, which includes the ERAU comprehensive exams, FAA Written, Oral & Practical exams, for $942.
