Do you accept the Hope Scholarship?

The majority of financial aid programs such as Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, and HOPE Scholarships/Grants are only available to student attending for-credit courses that lead to a degree or other academic credential. Emory Continuing Education offers non-credit courses, and we are unable to process these forms of financial assistance.
