Top 5 List of Things to Know When Applying to Colleges Like Emory & Henry

by Beth Funkhouser
You may be searching for colleges and realize there are many options! Emory & Henry College has created this helpful listing of the top 5 things that you and your family should know while you’re applying to colleges.
  1. File your FAFSA at fafsa.gov beginning October 1. You may be eligible for more financial aid than you think. 
  2. Research scholarships for each school! At Emory & Henry, we offer generous academic merit scholarships as well as a number of athletic, performance and interest group scholarships. 
  3. If you live in Virginia, you may be eligible for the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant Program (VTAG). This additional financial aid is for Virginia resident students who are enrolled at an eligible private college or university in Virginia.
  4. Be aware of the application requirements. Emory & Henry is test-score optional and doesn’t require an essay, so it’s easier than ever to apply! 
  5. Don’t forget to look into application deadlines or if your intended college offers rolling admissions and decision dates.
