Experience Emmanuel for yourself!
Colleges and universities promote themselves constantly. With all of the options out there, it's hard to tell what's real and what's not. Instead of just taking our word for it, we invite you to come to Emmanuel for a day and experience for yourself what sets us apart. That's why we host Preview!
Preview is a great opportunity for prospective students and parents to find out what Emmanuel is really like. You will participate in academic and financial aid workshops, visit classes, tour our campus, and enter drawings for scholarships, Emmanuel merchandise, and much more. Also, everyone who attends one of our preview events and completes an application on or before the preview date automatically receives a $1000 scholarship* to Emmanuel! Don't let this scholarship opportunity pass you by!

What is the Emmanuel Prepaid Card?
This Discover® backed Prepaid Debit Card is a pre-paid signature debit card accepted online and at Discover® merchants worldwide. Your Discover® Prepaid Debit Card is not a credit card and you are not opening a checking account. Starting Fall of 2011 it is automatically issued to all students currently enrolled at Emmanuel and is the primary way that any financial aid refunds or work-study payments are delivered to students. This free and convenient service for all students is designed to streamline our process for delivering funds to students, helping us "go green" as we shed paper check processing. The card is also loadable, which means students or students' families can place money on it that can be used to purchase books, food, gas, or practically anything from merchants that accept Discover®! It is important that every Emmanuel Student receive, activate, and hold on to the Emmanuel Prepaid card during their entire career as an Emmanuel College Student.

Within a few weeks after you register for your first semester of classes, you will receive your Emmanuel Prepaid Debit Card in a plain white envelope through the US mail at the address on record with your school.

You can also activate by phone by calling the toll-free number printed on the back of your card and following the recorded instructions.

Can I ask my non Emmanuel College employer to deposit my paycheck to my Discover® Card?
