Tuition and Fees

Enrollment Deposit Update

In light of the potential economic impact of the COVID-19 virus, Erskine College has announced that the enrollment deposit refund deadline for new students will be extended to June 1, 2020. This extension will allow those affected by the COVID-19 situation to delay payment of the enrollment fee (the former deadline was May 1, 2020). 
“We are implementing this policy as a way of helping families who may be experiencing financial hardship as a result of the virus,” Dean of Enrollment Dr. Tim Rees says. 
Please contact Erskine’s Admissions Office or your admissions counselor directly for more details.
