April 2, 2020-Updates to Room and Board Refund Discussion in Response to COVID-19

Dear Emory & Henry College Students and Families,

Thank you for your patience during this enormous change in all of our lives due to COVID-19. 

We appreciate you being flexible as we move to a remote learning environment to round out Spring 2020 semester. Our faculty have worked very hard over the past two weeks to move their curriculum to an online or remote learning format so you can finish the credits you signed up for–and so seniors can meet their graduation requirements. 

While we are relieved to be able to offer the opportunity for you to complete the credits covered by your tuition, we are looking into how we can provide partial reimbursements to families for room, board, and some fees. We are weighing many considerations as we shape that plan, including residence halls and meal plan costs, financial aid, and payment plans or balances. We want to take the time necessary to be as fair as possible.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this new and unexpected territory. We will send you an email with specifics about the reimbursement plan as soon as possible. If you have questions in the meantime, please email any of us.

You are also invited to bring your questions to Zoom Drop-In Office Hours with Dean of Students Ryan Bowyer and Dean of Student Success Jolie Lewis, 12:30-1:30 p.m. today. The zoom link is here: https://ehcmeeting.zoom.us/j/763670437

Together, we will get through this. 

Sincerely,

Angela Edmonson, CFO
Dr. John W. Wells, President
Dr. Michael J. Puglisi, Provost
