Undergraduate Financial Aid
At Emory University, we think choosing a college should be based on fit, not finances. Your undergraduate experience should start not with limiting choices, but with expanding opportunities. You can afford an Emory education.
Within Your Reach, Within Your Means
When Emory admits you as a student, it means we fundamentally believe not only in your accomplishments to date but also 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. No one should have to give up their goals and dreams because financial challenges stand in the way.
The fact that 60 percent of our undergraduates received financial aid in 2011-12 demonstrates our ongoing commitment to making an Emory education affordable to those students who have worked so hard to get here.
Emory is committed to awarding aid based on financial need determined by a thorough review of each family's circumstances.
|Average Financial Aid Package, Emory College||$36,807|
|Average Financial Aid Package, Oxford College||$30,495|
|Percent of Undergraduates Receiving Aid||68%|
|Total Undergraduate Financial Aid Awarded||$175 million|
The averages differ primarily because the cost of attendance
is different at the two colleges.
Take the steps necessary to be considered for need- and merit-based financial aid. And be assured that a top-notch private education is within your reach.

This chart shows the average need-based grant or scholarship by family income for Emory and Oxford college financial aid recipients. As you can see, even families with significantly higher incomes may be eligible for financial aid. No two families are alike, and financial circumstances can vary widely, whatever the stated income. That's why applying for aid, even if you think your family is not eligible, is a smart choice.
It's a good idea to use Emory's net price calculator to get a clearer picture of the amount of financial aid that might be available to you.
