First-Year Application Requirements

Applying to Emory University is done online through either the Common Application or the Coalition Application. Students have the freedom to select either application, and the Admission staff is not, in any way, partial to one application over the other. Both applications offer the same personalized options to all students: to apply to either Emory College, Oxford College, or both and to select the desired admission plan.

To complete your admission file, we require:

  • Common Application or Coalition Application
  • A $75 application fee or application fee waiver
  • Official high school transcripts
  • Official college transcripts, if applicable
  • Official or self-reported scores from the SAT and/or the ACT; if English is your second language, it is highly recommended that you submit results from the TOEFL or IELTS
    • Testing Codes: SAT/TOEFL: 5187; ACT: 0810
  • Secondary school report/counselor’s recommendation
  • Two teacher letters of recommendation
  • Mid-year report (due January 25 for Early Decision II applicants; February 15 for Regular Decision applicants)
  • Home-Schooled Applicants: In addition to meeting all admission requirements and submitting the required results from the SAT or ACT, we request that home-schooled applicants also submit results from three SAT II subject exams—one in mathematics and two of the student's choosing. Additionally, we require at least one letter of recommendation from someone other than a family member. We also encourage home-schooled applicants to submit a comprehensive explanation of their curriculum.
