The deadline for regular decision is March 1.
A completed admissions file consists of the following:
- the application form,
- an official secondary school transcript,
- a report of either Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT I) or American College Test (ACT) scores,
- an essay,
- and at least one recommendation letter.
Detailed admission requirements are available here.
Personal statements which help explain inconsistences in academic performance or standardized tests, while not required, are strongly recommended. In a case in which additional data are requested before an admission decision can be made, the applicant will be notified promptly once the supplemental information is received. Students may apply via the online E&H application, or through the Common Application website. Application requirements are the same for either application method.
An admitted student may reserve a place in the entering class by submitting an enrollment deposit of $400 ($250 for commuters). For Regular Decision applicants, Emory & Henry College subscribes to the National Candidate Reply Date of May 1. This deposit is applied to tuition charges for the initial semester of enrollment. The college honors a request for a refund of the deposit received on or before May 1. After that date, deposits are not refundable.
