Financing Your Education

Financial Aid Rankings
#13 - For best value among 200 top private universities, according to Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
#17 - For best value based on academic quality and average need-based aid, according to US News & World Report.

At Emory University, we think choosing a college should be based on fit, not finances. Your undergraduate experience should start with expanding opportunities, not limiting choices. That’s why Emory is committed to making college affordable for all qualified students who wish to attend, regardless of financial means.

When Emory admits you as a student, it means we fundamentally believe not just in your accomplishments to date but in your potential long after you leave here. That’s why we are committed to meeting 100 percent of demonstrated financial need for all accepted domestic students. The fact that about half of our undergraduates receive need-based financial assistance demonstrates this commitment.

No two families are alike, and financial circumstance can vary widely. Use the net price calculator to get a clearer picture of the amount of financial aid that might be available to you.

At the time you begin your application for admission, you should begin the financial aid application process. It is important to submit required financial aid documents by the stated deadlines. You will need to complete the College Scholarship Service’s PROFILE (CSS), the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and provide your and your parents’ tax documents. These enable the Financial Aid team to assess your family’s financial picture, which in turn allows us to offer you the assistance you need based on your family’s eligibility.

The following chart indicates Financial Aid deadlines based on the student's selected admission plan.

Admission Plan Admission Deadline Financial Aid Deadline
Early Decision I November 1 December 3
Early Decision II January 1 January 15
Regular Decision January 1 February 15
Fall Transfer March 15 March 15

* These are strongly recommended filing dates for each application plan. If you miss a deadline, you may still submit required forms; however, due to late submission your award determination will be delayed and impacted.
