We’re so pleased that you’ve chosen to attend Emory & Henry. As we welcome you to our campus community, this page details the next steps to finalize your enrollment. 

Finalize Your Financial Aid & Payment Options

  • If you have not done so, file your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and use our E&H code: 003709
  • After you are admitted, a Self Service account is created for you and you’ll receive an email at the address on your admissions application which will include login information. 
  • Review your financial aid award letter carefully. Ask questions, if needed. Award is mailed to home address as well as emailed to address on file when you apply. 
  • Finalize your financial aid and payment options on Self Service.
    • Login to Self Service and go to Financial Aid to accept (or decline) your financial aid and complete the required steps in the checklist. 
    • If accepting loans, complete the Master Promissory Note in Helpful Links.
    • Choose Tuition Payment Plans (12, 10, 8 and 5-month payment options) if needed.

Submit your $200 Enrollment Deposit

Your $200 non-refundable enrollment deposit reserves your place in the incoming class. $150 of your deposit money will be credited to your first semester of tuition, the remaining $50 covers your New Student Orientation fee.

Check this email frequently for updates.

Take Foreign Language Placement Test (if needed)

Have you ever taken Spanish, French or German before? Would you like to test out of the two-semester E&H language requirement? Or, do you feel ready to take intermediate or advanced foreign language classes? 

**If you have already completed college-level coursework in a Foreign Language, with a grade of C or higher and are able to submit a transcript, you do not have to complete this test.

Take your Foreign Language Placement Test before you attend your Emory & Henry Registration Day to determine your placement. 

The password is: ehc (there is NO “www”) and follow the instructions.

If you place into 102, 201 or above, congratulations! Your next step is to contact a faculty member in the Department of Foreign Language for assistance. 


Take Math Placement Test (if needed)

You need to take the placement exam if:

  • You want to take Math 123 (precalculus) or Math 151 (calculus) and you do not have AP or dual enrollment credit for the prerequisites.
  • You are placed in Math 100 using your SAT/ACT score and HS GPA and would like to place into a higher numbered course.

You do not need to take the placement exam if:

  • Your SAT SAT/ACT score and HS GPA have placed you in either Math 100 or Math 121 (College Algebra) and that is the course you want to take.
  • You want to take STAT 161/162/163 and that class will fill the requirement for your planned major (most social science majors).
  • You want to take Math 120 (Math for an Informed Citizenry) and that class will fill the requirement for your planned major (English, and most visual and performing arts majors).

Go to mymathtest.com. You will need the following information:

A valid E&H email address to use as your username.
• Access Code: WSSMMT-STEAD-TYPIC-BWANA-LEWIS-HOMES
• Our school’s zip code: 24327 and name: Emory & Henry College
• Program ID: (the 4th character is the letter O, and the others are zeros)

Helpful Details

You have the choice of two tests, depending on which class you are trying
to test into. There is a scientific calculator built into the system. Do not use a
graphing calculator. You can take the test up to 3 times. There are online lessons to help you on material you need to learn. For fall placement you need to pass the test previous to the Sunday before classes begin. Taking the test is subject to the E&H Honor code. Cheating will put you in a class where it will be hard to succeed.
