Our standard academic requirements include four years of high school English, three units of math (Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry), two laboratory science courses, two years of the same foreign language, and two years of social studies or history.
Admission staff will also evaluate academic performance in high school, including leaving tests scores, GCE and GCSE exam results. Strong emphasis is also placed on involvement and leadership in extracurricular and community activities.
To apply for admission to Emory & Henry College, you must complete our international student application. Use the transcript request form (PDF 35K) to request an official high school transcript and test scores from your high school. Specific application procedures are listed below.
The Office of Admissions must receive all necessary information by May 1 for the fall semester that begins mid-August, or by November 1 for the spring semester that begins mid-January.
The following items are required for all applicants:
Once these requirements have been met, your application will be reviewed. If accepted, you will receive e-mail notification of your acceptance. Once you pay your enrollment deposit, we send the official acceptance letter, the I-20 student visa application, along with other information related to the next steps you will take to register for classes, arrange for residence hall assignment, and transition to life as an Emory & Henry College student. A non-refundable $200 enrollment commitment deposit is required of all new students. Note: We do not send the I-20 form until you have paid your enrollment deposit.
International students can qualify for a limited number of academic scholarships, which are determined at the time of admission. These scholarships range up to $20,000 USD per academic year. Emory & Henry College does not offer full tuition scholarships.
Scholarships can be renewed for up to four years of study provided students maintain good academic standing. Academic scholarships are awarded to students provided they live in campus residence facilities and subscribe to the College's meal plan (board).
Direct cost for the 2013-2014 academic year is $38,746. Students, their families or sponsors are expected to provide for at least half of the total cost of attendance, and be able to continue financial support including any required fees, travel expenses, books and supplies, and health insurance.
Payment of Tuition & Fees
Once accepted, international students are required to pay the net cost of attendance for the first semester (less any scholarships you may be awarded) prior to enrolling. Invoices for tuition and fees are sent in July for the fall semester, and November for the spring semester. Students may pay with a certified bank check for US funds drawn on a US bank, or pay with a major credit card. International students may also sign up for the Payment Plan to help spread the cost of attendance over the course of each academic year.
