Your education may be the most important investment you and your family ever make. It is an investment and a commitment that will pay off for the rest of your life. While the responsibility of paying for an Emory education lies with you and your family insomuch as you are able to pay, we want to help you acquire the education you deserve and we offer an array of programs toward that end. The Emory University Office of Financial Aid offers three basic types of need-based financial aid: grants, work-study and low interest loans.
A grant is gift assistance that does not have to be repaid.
A work-study award must be earned on an hourly basis and you get paid twice monthly.
Low-interest loans must be repaid after you are no longer enrolled at least half-time at a postsecondary institution.
Most students with financial need receive a combination of all three of these and the average total need-based package is just under $37,000 per year. Sixty-eight percent of Emory students receive some sort of financial aid.
