Your Financial Aid Package

Once you have completed and submitted your financial aid application materials, Emory will review the information you have shared, determine your eligibility for federal, state, and institutional aid, and prepare a financial aid offer that includes the maximum amount of funding you are eligible for.

Reviewing Your Financial Aid Package

Once you have received an email notifying you that your financial aid package is ready, you can log into OPUS to review it.

After you login, select the Financial Aid tile, then the appropriate academic aid year. If you have not yet accepted, rejected, or adjusted your most recent package, you will see "Review Required" for this time period.

Next, select "Accept or Decline" Aid from the navigation bar on the left-hand side of the page. You will be asked to agree to the Office of Financial Aid's E-signature terms and conditions and Emory University's Title IV Agreement before you can proceed.

You will then be able to review and choose to accept, accept and reduce, or decline each funding source you are eligible for.

Next Steps


Once you have completed all outstanding Financial Aid To-Do items in OPUS and enrolled for the term in which you will use your financial aid, the funds you accepted will be disbursed by the Office of Financial Aid. The law allows disbursement of funds to begin 10 days from the official start of the academic term in which it will be used. Confirm the start date for your school or program's courses, as they may vary from the official university calendar.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

As a condition of accepting financial aid, you may be required to fulfill enrollment, GPA, and/or other requirements. We generally refer to these as Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure you are meeting any requirements applicable to your funding programs, however we will notify you if we believe you are in danger of not being able to do so. We recommend you speak with your financial aid advisor (link to Resources/Contact Us page) regularly to ensure you understand and are working to fulfill these obligations.
