The Details

The Ferris Pledge covers the full cost of tuition and standard fees by combining federal and state scholarships and grants with other Ferris financial aid options.

This means your $13,076 annual tuition will cost you zero dollars out of pocket. The Ferris Pledge can be renewed for up to four academic years with the option for a fifth year if you're on track for graduation.

Make sure to check with a financial aid expert to understand all of the college expenses beyond tuition and standard fees.
