Entering students may also receive advanced placement credits through completion of certain college level courses taken through their high school or at another college. Official college transcripts must be sent to Elmira College in order to receive appropriate credits. Requirements will not necessarily be waived on this basis. Students must make sure that the AP transcript is received by Elmira College and may either check with the Office of the Registrar, McGraw Hall, room 113, (607) 735-1895, or call Advanced Placement at (609) 771-7300.
