Tuition & Fees

Tuition per semester is $17,250 and $34,500** annually for new, incoming first-year and transfer students. The average room cost for the academic year is $6,300 and average board cost is $5,800*, which includes 19 meals per week plus $260 in Flex Cash and $260 in GET Funds cash.

Cost of Attendance (COA)

The cost of attendance (COA) is divided into two categories — Direct Cost and Indirect Cost. Direct Costs are items charged directly by Emory & Henry College, such as tuition and fees, room, and board. Indirect Costs are items such as books, supplies, transportation and other miscellaneous necessities.

Tuition, room, and board charges are typically 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.

*Total direct charges may vary based on selected meal plan, residence, and if student needs health insurance.
** Tuition rates are fixed (tuition freeze) for each entering class cohort group. This price represents tuition cost for New First-Year or Transfer students, and does not reflect tuition cost for Returning, Graduate, and Summer tuition rates, which will be available soon from this page.

Domestic Tuition Payments
Based on our continued commitment to help you more easily afford an education, Emory & Henry College has conducted a review of education payment plan providers, and Tuition Management Systems (TMS) has been chosen as our exclusive payment plan administrator.  As a result, we will no longer offer the services of AES. 12, 10, 8, 5 and 4-payment plans are available based on your individual needs. See Emory & Henry Tuition Payment Plan webpage for more details.

International Tuition Payments
Emory & Henry College has partnered with PaytoStudy to provide international students a method for making tuition payments effectively and efficiently. Students using PaytoStudy to pay their tuition payments will save money on all international wire transfers, and are guaranteed better currency exchange rates than those available directly through banks or credit cards. This new program guarantees that your deposits or tuition payments will be received by Emory & Henry College within 48 hour. Both Emory & Henry College and the student will receive an email notification as soon as your payment has been received.
