You Have Two Choices at Emory

As we hope you've found over the course of the college search process, collegiate success is largely grounded in fit. Where you feel supported, challenged, and empowered is where you will do your best learning -- our firm belief in this ideal is why we offer undergraduate applicants the choice between two different undergraduate experiences at two distinct campuses: Emory College, in Atlanta, GA, and Oxford College in Oxford, GA.

Emory College is a true fit for a student who values academic independence and the resources of one of the largest cities in the country. Emory students benefit from having the resources of a dynamic research institution in the city of Atlanta. Their academics and life outside of class are enhanced by hands-on industry access and internship opportunities.

Oxford College is ideal for a student who seeks an intimate campus and early opportunities for leadership. Oxford students benefit from smaller classes, personal interaction between students and professors, and early opportunities for campus leadership, all of which lay the foundation for the specialized work they do when they continue as juniors at Emory's Atlanta campus.

We Make it Easy to Apply

Both Emory College and Oxford College broaden students' perspectives by exposing them to a range of intellectual approaches -- if you have not yet decided which of our campuses is most attuned to your personal academic values, we strongly encourage you to apply to both schools. Though you can apply to both schools through one application, your application will be reviewed independently and you will receive independent decisions from each school.
