Financial Assistance

Scholarships, loans, and on-campus employment tailored to individual ability and need are available. Oxford works to combine scholarships, loans, and part-time employment with parental assistance in an effort to help students do their best work without financial strain.

A student must reapply for aid by the deadline each year. Provided the student continues to demonstrate financial need and remains in good academic standing with a GPA of 2.0 or greater, a first-year recipient can expect an aid package to be renewed for the sophomore year at Oxford. Given continued demonstration of need, and applying for aid on time each year, students continuing to Emory College for their junior and senior years can expect to receive the same percentage of tuition in need-based aid that they received at Oxford.

Need-based grants are awarded for an academic year, provided the student is not placed on academic probation for two consecutive semesters. A student placed on Honor Council probation will automatically lose his or her grant and scholarship. Students with less than a 3.0 GPA will have their grant eligibility reduced by the GA Hope scholarship award equivalent regardless of the state they reside. Students with less than a 2.0 GPA will have their grant eligibility reduced by a determined percentage, and will not receive 100 percent of their institutional grant eligibility. Oxford uses both the College Scholarship Service Profile and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for financial aid. The College Scholarship Service is a cooperative program for handling confidential statements submitted by parents in support of applications for financial assistance.

Both the CSS Profile and FAFSA forms should be filed online at collegeboard.com and fafsa.ed.gov, respectively. Signed copies of all student and parent tax returns, schedules, and W2 forms must be sent to the IDOC processor through the College Scholarship Service. For students who apply under the Early Decision I deadline, these statements should be sent by December 1 in order to ensure a financial aid award will be received prior to the December 15 deposit deadline. January 15 is the priority deadline for students who apply under Early Decision II and February 15 for those who apply under Regular Decision. Financial aid award packages for entering students with complete financial aid files are available 48 to 72 hours after the admission notification is made available. Financial aid award packages for returning and continuing students will be mailed in the summer.

Only applicants who have been accepted for admission or who already are enrolled will be awarded financial aid. Please view all financial requirements at studentaid.emory.edu.

“Federal financial aid laws and regulations require that each state have a process to review and act on complaint concerning educational institutions in the state. If you have a complaint, you may, of course, file a complaint with Emory’s financial aid office or call the Trust Line at 1-888-550-8850.

You may also file a complaint about Emory University with the State of Georgia Office of Inspector General by following the directions at the Office of Inspector General (OIG) website. In the event that OIG receives a student complaint relating to financial aid, it will be forwarded to the Office of Inspector General of the US Department of Education.”
