University description (as per official university website)
The college is located in Dubuque, a safe, lovely city of rolling hills and five colleges located on the Mississippi River, half-way between Chicago and Des Moines. It is an accredited, bachelor’s degree-granting institution of higher learning. The students come from 35 states and a number of foreign countries. They pick us because they can study the Bible and train for their professions at the same time.
The Campus is located on the west side of Dubuque on twenty-four acres of gently rolling land. The main building contains classrooms, the Marble Chapel, an auditorium, administration and faculty offices, dormitories, the dining room, student center, coffee shop, bookstore, and racquetball courts. Smith Hall contains a state-of-the-art computer center, additional dormitories, the Business Office, ECS Ministries, Believers Stewardship Services, and maintenance facilities. The Pollard Fieldhouse, attached to Smith Hall, offers two gymnasiums, weight room, and the Courtside Café.
Outdoor recreational facilities include spacious grounds for softball, football, soccer, and various winter sports. The gymnasiums offers facilities for basketball, volleyball, and other activities. The campus borders a public golf course that provides additional recreational opportunities. Ice-skating, downhill skiing, and cross-country skiing are also available in the community.
The Emmaus Bible College graduation rate for 2007/2008 was 76.92%. This number represents the percentage of certificate or degree seeking undergraduate students who completed their intended programs within 150% of the published program length.

Emmaus Bible College is able to offer a variety of financial aid through Federal Student Aid programs, Institutional Aid programs, and private sources.
Currently, Emmaus participates in three federally funded financial aid programs: Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, and Federal Stafford Loans. These programs are designed to provide financial assistance to students with financial need based on their resources. All applicants must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens, high school graduates (or equivalent), making satisfactory academic progress, and not be in default on any loan or owe a refund on any grant made under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. To apply for these, the student must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available at your local library or high school or through the Financial Aid Office at Emmaus.
In an effort to further assist students, Emmaus has a limited supply of grants, scholarships, and awards that may be available to eligible full-time students. Requirements and applications vary depending upon individual scholarship.
