Is financial aid available?

Emory and visiting transient students must enroll for at least six (6) hours to be eligible and  considered for financial aid in the summer. 

For Emory students, a separate financial application for summer is not necessary. Once you register for summer classes on OPUS, your financial aid is reviewed and considered if you receive aid during the year. Students are strongly encouraged to register for all the hours they intend to take during the summer, so they can be considered for the maximum aid. Federal work-study or PELL grant is not available during the summer. 

For visiting (non-degree seeking) students, a limited number of visiting student scholarships are available to help with tuition costs. You can complete the visiting student scholarship information with your online application by May 15, 2017.
