Emory Noted as a "Best Value" by Princeton Review, Kiplinger's
The Princeton Review has named Emory University one of its "2011 Best Value Colleges" for private schools. The annual rankings of the 50 best value private schools and 50 best value public institutions were published in USA Today this week. Emory was most recently cited as a "Best Value" by The Princeton Review in 2009 and 2008.
Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine also recently named Emory a "Best Value" for 2010-2011, ranking the university 15th overall in its annual Best Value survey of 100 top private universities that exemplify excellent academics while keeping costs to a minimum.
Financial Aid at Emory
Need-blind admissions remain a cornerstone of Emory's financial aid philosophy: a family's ability to pay is not considered in the admission process for freshmen. Emory also enhances access and affordability with special financial aid initiatives such as Emory Advantage.
Emory Advantage provides additional need-based grant assistance to eligible families with total annual incomes of $100,000 or less. Emory Advantage funding is designed to reduce a student's dependence on educational borrowing normally required to attain an undergraduate degree.
Competitive merit-based scholarships are offered to incoming first-year students as well, and such aid also is awarded to high achieving students currently enrolled.
Need-blind admissions apply to all prospective freshmen, who have the option to apply together or separately to Emory College of Arts and Sciences on Emory's Atlanta campus, or to the Oxford College on Emory's original campus, about 40 miles east of Atlanta.
