Emory & Henry works to keep student costs manageable, while maintaining a high quality, transformative educational experience. Throughout the financial aid section of this website, you'll discover options for scholarships, talent-based awards, need-based grants, and other sources of internal and external financial aid.
Tuition, room, and board typically are posted by March 1 of each year for the following year. Fees other than tuition, room, and board typically are not revised until April 1 of the preceding year; therefore, the miscellaneous fee amounts posted may change.
The mission of the Office of Student Financial Planning is to help you develop a financial plan for meeting your share of the investment you make in an Emory & Henry College education. On average, the College distributes more than $12 million in financial aid each year to qualified students -- in fact, most students receive some form of financial assistance from the College. At the same time, the College expects families and students themselves to have a stake in the overall cost of an Emory & Henry degree. The specific amount of merit-based scholarships, E&H need-based grants, state and federal grants, and student/parent loans depends upon your specific academic and financial profile.
These timelines walk students and families through the financial aid process and include links to the forms needed to complete the application process.
Emory & Henry College awards merit-based scholarships ranging from $6,000 to $20,000. These scholarships can include talent-based funds (Art, Theatre, Music), academic program funds(Pre-Health, Church Vocations & Leadership, Honors Program), as well as academic scholarships based upon admission criteria. The total merit award offered to individual students depends upon a student's academic performance in high school (or college GPA for transfer students), as well as results of interviews, auditions or portfolio reviews in specific programs (if eligible).
The maximum amount of merit-based scholarship (combination of any academic, talent or program award) is $20,000. Once that maximum is reached, any additional aid must be based on financial need. If a scholarship is awarded for participation in a particular program, such as Art, Theatre, Music, or Honors, merit funding will be reduced by the amount of the award if the student leaves the program and/or declines the award. Merit-based aid is normally not increased after a student’s first year. If additional scholarships are earned for second and subsequent years, they are used to underwrite institutional aid that has already been awarded as part of a student’s financial aid package.
