Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance budget is considered sufficient to support a basic lifestyle for a single student. It does not include expenses for dependents, travel, vacations, or luxury items such as automobiles, household furniture, or appliances. The estimated cost of attendance for 2017-2018 for a full time undergraduate student enrolled for fall and spring semesters is $67,636. This is not the amount you will owe. The cost of attendance is not the amount you will pay for the year. The cost of attendance is the budget used to determine the financial aid amount offered each year and is more than a student's full time tuition and fees to provide assistance for living expenses if needed.

Transfer students from another college/university or from Emory or Oxford College within Emory University will need to resubmit their financial aid information.
Complete the following steps to determine their eligibility for federal and state-specific scholarships. Please refer to the Emory University Office of Financial Aid for aid application instructions and guidelines.                       

  • Step 1: Complete the 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Emory University’s Federal School Code 001564.
  • Step 2: Complete the 2017-18 College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS) PROFILE

  • Step 3: Emory and Oxford traditional BSN students who are interested in receiving need-based aid from the School of Nursing must submit additional documentation through College Board's Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC). Submitting this documentation to the College Board helps Emory process applications more quickly and award financial aid resources to families more equitably.
  • Step 4: If applicable, students may also need to complete the Non-custodial Profile. The Non-custodial Profile is necessary for students who are applying for need-based aid AND are dependent AND their biological or adoptive parents are divorced, separated, or never married, must have their non-custodial parent complete and submit the Non-Custodial Profile application
Students should begin their financial aid application at the same time as their application for admission to ensure that financial aid awards are received by the deposit deadline. Missing documents and incorrect information will delay Emory’s ability to process your application. To ensure consideration for all need-based financial assistance, complete the following forms by the dates indicated.

A wide range of scholarships and fellowship opportunities are available to help students reduce the cost of their nursing education. Scholarships are funds that do not have to be repaid. All admitted students are evaluated for merit scholarships. To learn more about available scholarship opportunities, visit the School of Nursing’s web site.  


Like scholarships, grants are funds that do not need to be repaid. The only application required for these programs is the FAFSA. Grants are available from state and federal resources, and are subject to annual budgets and appropriations. To learn more about available grant and scholarship opportunities, visit Emory University Office of Financial Aid website. 

Student Employment

Student Employment allows students to gain valuable work experience, while earning money toward the cost of their education.  The types of positions available for students are classified as either Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program employment or non-FWS part-time employment.


Student loans are money which is borrowed to help pay for university tuition, books, and living expenses. Because these funds must be repaid, exhaust all other sources of aid and borrow only what is absolutely necessary. Nursing Student Loans are available for undergraduate nursing students who are enrolled at least half-time. Awards are based upon the availability of funds and on financial need using the information provided on the FAFSA. To learn more about Nursing Student and other loans, visit the Office of Financial Aid.  

Private Scholarships

Private scholarships for college students are offered each year by various corporate, professional, trade, government, civic, religious, social, and fraternal organizations. These scholarships can range in amount from small honorariums to thousands of dollars. To be considered, students must meet the eligibility criteria specified by the donor and complete the donor's scholarship application. Searching for and applying for a scholarship is a time-consuming process, so it is a good idea to start as early as possible.

It can take several weeks to process a financial aid application. We encourage you to complete and submit financial aid application early. After your application materials have been reviewed and processed, you will receive an email from the Office of Financial Aid to your address, notifying you that your Award Notice is available on OPUS.
