Kiplinger's Names Emory a Top 10 Best Value

Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine has ranked Emory University ninth among the 100 best values in private universities that exemplify excellent academics while keeping costs to a minimum. See Kiplinger's 2009 Best Values: Private Colleges & Universities.

Selected from a pool of more than 600 private institutions provided by Peterson's, schools in the Kiplinger 100 are ranked according to academic quality and affordability, with quality accounting for two-thirds of the total.

Resources Remain Strong for Financial Aid

The Princeton Review also named Emory among its best values in private schools this week. The rankings reflect Emory's continuing commitment to “need blind” admissions and to meeting the full, demonstrated financial need for dependent, traditional undergraduate students. Emory also is working to increase accessibility for low- and middle-income students through the Emory Advantage grant and loan relief program and other financial aid.

"Emory, like all institutions and businesses, is having to adjust to a new economic reality and this will impact the budget in a variety of ways. However, financial aid is among our top priorities and we expect to devote more – not fewer – resources to financial aid in the coming years to ensure that all students who are admitted can attend independent of economic background," says Santa Ono, senior vice provost for undergraduate education.
