Emory's Board of Trustees has approved a 2.5 percent increase in the total tuition, fees, and room and board cost for undergraduates enrolled in Emory College of Arts and Sciences for 2013-2014. 

"Emory is very much aware of the investment students and their families make in selecting a college, and we are pleased that this modest increase can continue to provide access to a world-class education for the most talented and diverse undergraduate student community,” says Claire Sterk, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.

At its Feb. 8 meeting, the board increased Emory College's current undergraduate tuition from $42,400 to $43,400 and its combined undergraduate tuition, fees, room and board to $56,370.

Emory College maintains a commitment to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need for admitted domestic undergraduates and their families, with more than 60 percent of all Emory undergraduates currently receiving financial aid of some form, Sterk adds. 

Emory is consistently identified as a best value among private universities and colleges—those institutions that are both academically strong and affordable. Currently ranked 15th in the country by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance as a best value among private universities, it also was named a "Best Value College" by the Princeton Review in 2013 in its list of the top 75 private schools selected on the basis of their excellent academics, financial aid, and cost of attendance.
