Ranked among the best liberal arts colleges in the nation, Erskine offers an unparalleled education that is surprisingly affordable.
In fact, a typical South Carolina student with a GPA of at least 3.0, a solid SAT score of at least 1000 (or ACT of 22), and in the top third of their graduating class can expect to attend Erskine for around $10,000 per year. That puts Erskine in line with public universities across the state.
For out-of-state students, the cost of attending Erskine compares well to in-state tuition at colleges in the student’s home state.
Over 90% of our students receive some form of financial assistance from Federal, State, and Institutional aid sources.
Erskine offers a variety of scholarship opportunities that recognize our students’ academic abilities, athletic talent, and honor their dedication to the performing arts, community service and the ARP church.
