In case of fire, either the smoke detectors or fire alarms will sound. Students, faculty and staff should do the following:
- In an orderly fashion, exit the building, staying low to avoid smoke inhalation.
- If the fire alarm has not been activated, pull the closest fire alarm when exiting the building. (If the fire alarm has already been activated, there is no need to pull a second alarm.)
- Familiarize yourself with the layout of the building. Escape routes are posted throughout buildings in areas easily accessible to everyone.
- If you are the last person to exit a classroom or office, close the door, reducing the fire’s spread and damage.
- After exiting, meet in designated areas (see 7 below) to be accounted for. Under no circumstances should you reenter a burning building!
- To prevent personal endangerment and obstruction of emergency responders and equipment, do not leave the assigned areas until cleared to do so by your Area Leader.
The following areas are designated as safe zones for fire evacuation:
- Aaron Building: Center of quad and grassy knoll near gazebo
- Admissions/Financial Aid: Field behind Admissions
- Gym/Café/Bookstore: Hill beside Franklin Springs PH Church
- Library: Parking lot of Wellons Science Resource Center
- Maintenance: Gate entrance next to tree line
- Nash/SCM: Behind Gym
- Student Life/Wellons Science: Wellons resident parking lot
- SAC: Baseball Field
- Swails Center: West parking lot next to tree line
- Taylor Building/Taylor Chapel/Cafeteria: Center of Quad
- Teacher Education: Tennis Courts
Note: These areas have been selected as initial meeting places after consultation with local fire officials. If the area becomes dangerous, the Area Leader will direct the group to a safer place.
In Case of Emergency
Dial 911 for Fire, Ambulance, and Life-Threatening Emergencies.
Dialing “9” to reach an outside line is not required when dialing 911.
All extensions must dial “9” to reach an outside line.

The mission of the Work Study Program at Emmanuel College is to provide students a meaningful work experience aimed at enhancing their college and career goals, while providing financial support.
Emmanuel College strives to offer a wide variety of employment opportunities, both on and off campus. The Work Study Program assists both the college and community businesses by developing job opportunities that allow students the opportunity to earn money, expand academic preparation, and explore career objectives through their college work experience. Students are encouraged to submit their application for student employment to Financial Aid as soon as possible.
The two types of student employment are:
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is for students who have demonstrated need according to the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Institutional Work-Study (IWS) is for students who are not eligible for the Federal Work-Study program, including international students.
How Do I Apply?
Any student interested in working on campus through the Work Study Program must submit an Application for Work Study to Financial Aid. Applications can be downloaded via the link below or students can visit the Financial Aid Office.
Applications for the Work Study Program are processed through the Financial Aid office and are then forwarded to Human Resources. All applications submitted remain on file and the information is forwarded to departments as jobs become available. Student work study jobs on campus are subject to availability and are not guaranteed.
All F-1 student employees may begin working provided that the student has met all I-9 requirements. International students must obtain a Social Security number in order to stay employed. To obtain a social security card, the international student must be hired in a department. The student must go to the Human Resources office for a letter to take to the Social Security Administration office indicating the department supervisor’s name and the signature of the Director of Human Resources. In order to complete the Student Employment Hiring process, International student employees must provide either a receipt of application for a Social Security card or the actual Social Security card within 10 business days of the start of employment.
Change in Student Status
No student worker may not continue to work on campus after withdrawing from school, dropping below 6 hours, or upon completion of their program. It does not matter what time of the year the change in status occurs (fall, spring, or summer).
Before a student can start work, all students selected for a Work Study position must complete and submit a Work Study Hire Packet, which includes the Work Study Supervisor Contract, Federal and State payroll forms, and the Federal I-9 form to Human Resources. Proper documentation for verifying identity and eligibility to work within the United States via E-Verify is required.
All positions are paid at least minimum wage, and student employees are paid on a bi-weekly schedule by electronic deposit. For payroll questions, please contact Mischelle Dickerson at 706-245-2808 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information regarding the Emmanuel College Work Wtudy program, please contact Mrs. Harper in the Human Resources Office, Aaron Bldg, #203-B; (706) 245-2805; email@example.com.
The following resources can help you find other sources of financial aid. Beware of scams and services that will charge you a fee!
AmeriCorps provides full-time educational awards in return for community service. You can work before, during or after your post-secondary education, and you can use the funds either to pay current educational expenses or to repay federal student loans. For more information, call 1-800-942-2677 or visit http://www.americorps.org/
Businesses and labor organizations: Many companies, businesses and labor organizations have programs to help employees or members and their families pay for post-secondary education. Ask about scholarship programs and the application process.
Organizations: Foundations, religious organizations, fraternities or sororities and civic clubs offer student financial aid. Also, search community organizations and civic groups such as the YMCA, 4-H Club, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Girl or Boy Scouts, etc. Organizations connected with your field of interest can also be helpful.
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs: If you (or your spouse) are a veteran or you are the dependent of a veteran, veterans’ educational benefits may be available. Information is available at www.gibill.va.gov or call 1-888-442-4551.
Public libraries and the Internet are excellent sources of information on state and private sources of financial aid. When using either, search using keywords like “financial aid,” “student aid,” “scholarships,” etc. Some examples include:
- Thumbtack School-To-Skills Scholarship 2016-2017
- EZstorit "Get Ahead Scholarship"
Emmanuel College participates in the following financial aid programs:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Financial Aid Overview
To apply for financial aid, the first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can complete the FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov or go to http://www.ed.gov for more information. Also, click here to see what EC Scholarships you may qualify for!
Net Price Calulator
But what will a Tier 1 education, according to U.S. News and World Report, from Emmanuel College cost you? All you have to do is visit our Net Price Calculator to get a peronsalized estimate. Keep in mind this is not a final determination or actual award of financial assistance. However, it should give you a fairly accurate picture of the financial aid you'll recieve here at Emmanuel.
Base Costs and Fees
Below are the base costs and fees for Emmanuel College. Keep in mind that since 99% of our students receive financial aid, it is highly unlikely this is what you will pay to attend EC. For a fairly acurate estimate of what it will actually cost you, visit Emmanuel's Net Price Calculator above.
Budgeting for Books
Your tuition does not include the cost of books that are required for your class. For more infomation about budgeting for books and purchasing them, click here.
Students can view their accounts online by going to www.ec.edu and logging into “My EC.” Go to "account" to view a copy of your account balance. You can change the semester you would like to view from the menu under your picture.
Payments may be submitted directly online using a debit or credit card, in person at the Cashier’s Office, or mailed to Emmanuel College, P.O. Box 129, Franklin Springs, GA, 30639. Interest-free payment plan enrollment option is also available online. Paper statements will not be mailed unless a specific need exists.
PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS
In order for a student to be activated for a particular semester, the total charges for the semester, including any balance remaining from a previous semester, must be covered by some combination of the following by July 15 for fall semester and by December 15 for spring semester:
- Finalized financial aid, including all loans, grants, and scholarships. (Please note, the amount of financial aid received may not be sufficient to cover total charges for the semester.)
- A signed and approved EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLAN contract accepted by Emmanuel College. (Emmanuel College maintains sole discretion to determine if payments under the plan are reasonable and likely to be paid.)
- Payment on account by cash, check, money order, or approved charge to a valid debit or credit card.
If the student’s financial aid is not finalized by July 15 for fall semester and by December 15 for spring semester, then in order to be activated, the student must cover all semester charges, including any prior balance, by some acceptable combination of items 2 and 3 above by August 15 for fall semester and by December 15 for spring semester. If financial aid is subsequently finalized, then one or more of the items used to cover the charges may be reduced or refunded to the student.
FAILURE TO COVER CHARGES
If a student fails to cover the charges for a semester by the date specified above, the following procedures will apply:
1. The student will not be activated and will not be allowed to attend classes.
2. If a resident student, the student will not be allowed to move into the residence hall.
3. The student’s transcript will not reflect enrollment or registration for the semester.
4. Charges and financial aid for the semester will be removed from the student’s account.
DEFAULT ON EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLANS
If a student fails to fund a monthly payment on their EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLAN, the student may be administratively withdrawn from school for that semester and the following procedures shall apply:
1. If a resident student, the student must move out of the residence hall by midnight of the Sunday following the administrative withdrawal.
2. The student’s transcript will reflect the withdrawal for the semester.
3. Charges and financial aid for the semester will be prorated according to the Federal Withdrawal Calculation.
Any time a balance exists after July 15 for fall semester or after December 15 for spring semester, a FINANCE CHARGE OF 1.5% PER MONTH will be applied to any past due balances. This is an ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE OF 18%. If a student’s account must be submitted to a collection agency for collection, all costs of collection will be added to the account and must be paid in order to settle the account.
Emmanuel College reserves the right to suspend and/or dismiss a student for nonpayment of amounts due. In the case of a suspension, a fee of $100.00 will be charged for reinstatement after the account is paid in full. Diplomas and/or transcripts will not be released until all outstanding balances on accounts with the College have been settled.
Emmanuel College, like most colleges, must make commitments in advance for faculty, staff, equipment, supplies, utilities, and other operating expenses for the entire year. Therefore, the college policy considers the acceptance of registration as a contract binding student and parents for charges for the entire semester.
However, when it becomes necessary to withdraw from school, reduction in tuition and residence charges will be made according to the refund policy as outlined by Federal Law. Emmanuel College has adopted the Federal Policy as the official refund policy of the college. To be eligible for a refund of tuition and residence charges, a student must complete the official withdrawal process or be administratively withdrawn.
Depending on when a student becomes no longer enrolled, the law may provide for a refund of unearned tuition, fees, and residence charges for students who withdraw, drop out, are expelled, fail to return from an approved leave of absence, or fail to complete the period of enrollment for which they were charged.
The Federal Refund Policy mandates that the College calculate the cancelation of tuition and fees and refunds of Title IV funds based on the percentage of the semester the student has completed. Any student who has completed more than sixty percent (60%) of the semester will not be eligible for any refund. More details may be obtained from the Office of Student Accounts or Financial Aid Office.
Before you begin the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process, have these documents available: federal income tax returns, W-2s, records of untaxed benefits received, current bank statements, and records of other savings and investments such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
To expedite the processing of your application, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the new IRS Data Retrieval option which is available when completing the online FAFSA.
You must complete the FAFSA to be considered for these financial aid programs:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
- Federal Work-Study
- Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
- Federal PLUS (Parent) Loans
- EC Endowed and Funded Scholarships (where demonstrated need is an eligibility criterion)
You are encouraged to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible, but no earlier than January 1 of each year. Some financial aid programs—such as FSEOG, Endowed and Funded Scholarships, and Federal Work-Study—have limited funding, so early application is very important.
The U.S. Department of Education may select your FAFSA for a process callled Verification. In this review, the Office of Financial Aid is required by law to compare your FAFSA information with copies of your IRS Tax Return Transcripts and other financial documents. If your FAFSA has been selected for review, you will be asked for additional documentation.
How to Apply
To complete your FAFSA online, go to www.fafsa.gov. Make sure you use our school code: 00156300.
Students and parents are encouraged to sign the FAFSA electronically. To do so, you must have a valid PIN number from the U.S. Department of Education. To obtain a PIN number, go to www.pin.ed.gov.
In addition to the FAFSA, students need to complete the Emmanuel College Application for Financial Aid (ECAFA) here.
All grants, scholarships and loans singularly or in combination cannot exceed a students’ cost of attendance. A students cost of attendance is determined by the financial aid office and includes tuition, room and board, books, transportation and miscellaneous expenses.
