If this information makes going to college sound impossible, remember, the total cost of tuition isn't necessarily what you will have to pay to attend a school. Many students owe way less than the total tuition after grants, scholarships, and tuition discounts kick in. And, student loans can make the amount you do have to pay out of pocket more manageable until you're done with college.
Emory University is a private, religious institution, so it has the same tuition for residents of Georgia as it does for residents from other states.
Public schools receive funds from the state to help them cover costs. Public, state schools can offer lower tuition for students who meet the requirements for in-state residency.
Choosing a college where you qualify for in-state tuition can cut the cost of college tuition. Take the time to verify your state's criteria for in-state tuition. Each state has different requirements to qualify as in-state resident. Most states require students to have resided in the state for a certain period of time before qualifying. There may be other criteria too, depending on where you live.

Tuition is not the only cost of attending college; room and board, books, transportation and fees are also costs it consider when budgeting for college. Let's take a look at what impacts these costs, and what to expect at Emory.
Room and board at Emory is $17,016 a year. This covers the cost of living in dorms or other on-campus housing, and a dining plan that enables you to eat all or some of your meals the school dining facilities. Students who do not live on-campus but still want to use the dining facilities can choose to be on a meal plan. The cost of a mean plan, or board-only, is $9,670.
Meal-plan costs may vary depending on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.
The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and what kinds of books and materials they require. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy used textbooks and materials.
The majority of colleges also have fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
Keep in mind, there could also be additional fees associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Most colleges offer resources for students with demonstrated need to get help covering these fees.
The cost of getting around in college depends on a few key factors. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking? Is the campus walkable? Do you plan to bring a car or are you planning to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your estimated cost of transportation. At Emory, freshman are not allowed to park on campus.
The location of a college or university can impact your transportation budget. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, transportation in an urban area is sometimes pricey, but cities may offer more buses, trains and affordable flights to actually get to school. The Emory University campus is located in a suburban setting in Georgia, not far from Atlanta.
When estimating your budget for college, don’t forget to take into account personal expenses, like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.
Now, let’s do a rundown of all of the costs associated with college, to get a better estimate of how much students can expect to shell out for Emory.

|Most Common Loans for Emory Students|
Most students take out institutional or government loans, because they tend to have lower interest rates and more flexible repayment options than private loans. Loans from the federal government can be subsidized or unsubsidized. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest during school, while unsubsidized loans begin accruing interest at the time the loan is issued. If students do no qualify for enough federal loans to cover the cost of tuition, some take out private loans. Parents can also take out ParentPLUS loans, which are government loans for parents who are helping their children pay for college.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) helps colleges determine how much financial need students and their familes have, so they can offer a financial aid package that meets, or come close to meeting, their need. For more information on Emory financial aid, keep reading, or visit their financial aid website.
Some students may receive grants and scholarships to help pay for college. Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be paid back.
In 2022, Emory awarded 3,035 need-based scholarships to students, giving away total of $149.7 million to help students with financial need cover the cost of school. An additional $16.97 million in merit-based scholarship money was awarded to students without demonstrated financial need.
The net price of college is the actual cost of attending a school for one year. Net cost is calculated by subtracting any scholarships, grants or other aid that does not need to be paid back from the total cost. Student loans are not part of the calculation, because they need to be repaid.
Now that we have a sense of the total estimated costs for Emory students, we can subtract the average financial aid package to find the estimated net cost. Net cost can vary depending on a students’ need and the financial aid award received.
When considering whether a school fits your budget, it is important to consider the estimated net cost, not just the sticker price of tuition. Often, schools with the highest tuition also offer the most generous aid packages, so estimate your net cost before eliminating a school because it does fit your budget.
The average amount of financial aid received by a full-time first year student with demonstrated need at Emory was $51,104 in 2022. By substracting the average financial aid package from the estimated costs, we get a number that may make the cost of Emory seem more manageable.
