Military Veteran Applicants

At Emory University, we welcome applications from US military veterans, and we recognize the value your experience brings to our community. Emory is an active partner with Service 2 School.

Your military experience adds value to your application, especially to the nonacademic portion we consider. When completing your application, make sure to tell us what you learned during your service. Please note that all veterans qualify for a fee waiver through the Common Application or Colation Application. When applying, simply select “yes” to the question about if you qualify for a fee waiver. No further documentation needs to be provided.

For information about how to use your veteran education benefits at Emory, learn more at Emory’s Veterans Education Benefits.
