Financial Aid

Types Of Aid

An investment in an Emerson education is an investment in a lifetime of professional achievement.

If you qualify for an Emerson education, our Office of Student Financial Services 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:
