Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
While an incredible institution with many ties, Emory is VERY expensive. Do not be surprised if you need to take out a loan along with your scholarships. But an Emory Degree will take you far.
Emory is expensive as h3!! but given all the events put on by Emory and the great opportunities for research and internships, it might not be such a bad trade-off. Also, financial aid is okay and helps (as long as you're middle class or below).
Monique from Columbus, GA
While I love everything about Oxford College, the tuition is a little steep and financial aid can be fun to try to fight out of the college. However, the officers are helpful and want you to come, so they'll try to help with the cost as best as they can.
William from Oxford, GA
Emory is pricey, but definitely worth it. You get an amazing education, experience every bit of the college social scene, make great connections, and since Emory is a prestigious institution, you're bound to obtain a job right after college or enter graduate school
Ellen from PA
The classes here are challenging but the cost of tuition is incredibly high. While the academic standards do live up to the cost, it's important to know whether Oxford is in your budget. If not, make sure you're applying for several scholarships and speaking to the Office of Financial Aid on a regular basis. If you're willing to make the effort, Oxford is willing to help you in any way they can!

It's a high-priced institution and keeps getting pricier since tuition is being raised for the year 2012-13. Though it is highly expensive, the institution has a huge endowment and if you are in need, Emory will usually give you a grant that covers most or all of the tuition. There is also Emory Scholars program that caters to students who have excelled in a particular area of study. Those students also receive grants. Emory is a little overpriced but they mostly make up for it with all of the on-campus resources they provide.
Monique from Columbus, GA
Unfortunately, like all other top tier private schools, Emory's tuition is phenomenally high. However, the high costs of attending this college are well worth it, mainly for the reasons stated above. Not only are you receiving a high class education, there's a lot of fun available all around you. Not all schools in the same tier can say the same thing. From outstanding professors to high rated advisors to surprisingly small classes, there is nothing missing in the formula for a good education. To top it all off, Emory's facilities are remarkable. I've visited a lot of colleges, both private and public, and few can compare with the technology and quality of the facilities. Emory basically lays out the stepping stones to your future success with all that it has to offer, and as mentioned already, very few schools in the nation can say the same thing.
Sean from Seattle, WA
College is expensive and Emory is no exception. Emory is well worth the high cost of tuition. From academics to athletics to amazing extracurricular opportunities, there are so many ways students can find success at Emory. College is a place to grow and Emory is certainly a place where academic and personal growth is possible. In addition, employers will most likely look favorably upon your ability to graduate with a degree from Emory.
Molly from Woodland Hills, CA
i graduated with a degree in neuroscience and behavioral biology, and i thought it would be easy to get a good paying job after college, but bachelor's of science degrees are literally bs! the only way to get a decent job is to keep going to school and get a master's or doctorate (md, phd) degree, which is what most students end up doing. but in the long run, i have found that having "emory" on my resume will really take you places.
