Apply for Financial Aid in Three Steps

1. Complete the FAFSA

First, you need to complete the FAFSA, so you will be considered for all forms of federally funded grants, low-interest-rate loans, and work-study assistance. Make sure you pay attention to deadlines.

Get started on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

001564

2. Complete the CSS Profile

Emory requires you to complete the CSS Profile in addition to the FAFSA, if you would like to be considered for Emory-funded, need-based grant programs. The Profile allows for a more thorough review of your family’s financial standing and also provides for income allowances that are not considered for federal programs.
