    • If a health insurance policy is needed, students may also check for more competitive rates via the federal government’s official ACA website  or the general health insurance marketplace website. Open enrollment for marketplace plans is currently “closed” but “returning to school” may qualify as a “life change” and allow enrollment at this time.

This may require the purchase of additional clothing to accommodate the dress code requirement. Clothing expenses can vary greatly depending on individual student needs and choices. An Emory & Henry College AT polo shirt ($30.00) is required for all students. Information about the polo shirt and sizing options will be sent to the student with their textbook list.
