Costs for additional airport pickups are $150 for Dulles or Washington Reagan, $90 for Charlottesville and $25 for Shenandoah Valley.

Students needing to arrive earlier than dormitories are open should inform us so we may make special arrangements for accommodations.


Payments and Insurance

  • Bring funds in U.S. dollars in the form of cash, travelers checks, or certified bank checks (more information).
  • Show proof of medical insurance coverage or be prepared to purchase EMU’s student health insurance. Health insurance coverage is required for all international students.
