Is Emory need-blind?

Hey guys, I need some info about financial aid at Emory University. Is Emory a need-blind institution? How does this affect their admission process? Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Emory University is mostly need-blind for domestic students, including permanent residents and undocumented students, but may consider financial needs as they finalize the admissions process. They are not need-blind for international students. Being mostly need-blind means that Emory evaluates domestic applicants based on their merit and not their financial need, but ultimately, Emory cannot promise that financial need will play zero role in their admissions decisions.

Being "mostly" need-blind does not guarantee that the university will meet 100% of demonstrated financial need for every admitted student. Emory is committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for domestic students through a combination of grants, scholarships, work-study opportunities, and loans.

For international students, Emory is need-aware, meaning that your financial situation may have an impact on your admission decision. Emory does offer financial aid to a limited number of international students every year and meets 100% of their demonstrated need, but the competition for these spots is more intense due to the limited funding.

So, if you are a domestic student, your financial need won't affect your chances of admission to Emory. Make sure to complete the FAFSA and CSS Profile on time to be considered for financial aid. If you're an international student, it's essential to understand that while financial aid is available, it's more limited and could influence the admission decision.
