Application Guidelines for International Applicants
Emory international students wave a banner
To apply for admission, international students must complete all the application requirements for first-year admission. Additionally, they must demonstrate English proficiency and provide financial certification.
English Proficiency Requirements
If English is not your primary language, you must show you’re able to succeed academically in a rigorous English-speaking classroom. You should be fluent in written and spoken English at the time you apply.

Financial Aid for International Students
We offer need-based financial aid to a select group of international students each year.
International students are required to submit the International/Financial Certification form (FIF) to show they have sufficient funds to cover all expenses while attending Emory University. We also will accept a note or statement from your bank or financial institution as proof of sufficient funding.
If you are an international student applying for financial aid, you do not need to show you have sufficient funds to cover fully your first year at Emory. If you’re applying for financial aid, complete the FIF as accurately as possible with funds ranging from $0 per year up to the cost of attendance.
If you have been issued a resident alien registration number (permanent residency or green card) since sending in your application, please email a copy of it to our office or upload a copy to your applicant portal to change your status.
If you have applied for permanent residency status but have not yet received your green card, you still will need to fill out the financial certification form and send in a copy of your permanent residency application.
Applicants should upload their FIF and any other supporting documents to their applicant portal. click the link above for more
