Financial Aid

Types of Aid

Our Office of Financial Aid will make every effort to help you finance the costs. With careful financial planning, you’ll be surprised at how affordable an Emerson education can be.

More than two-thirds of Emerson’s student body receives financial assistance to help pay for their education. The average award—usually a combination of scholarships, low-interest loans, and part-time employment—is approximately $16,000.

We offer several types of financial assistance programs: need-based grants, employment, low-interest loans, merit scholarships, and alternative payment plans to help make an Emerson education possible. Learn more:
