The application process is a little different whether you're a U.S. citizen (or permanent resident) or an international student. If you are applying to Elmira as an international student, take a look at the process and forms you'll need for your application. We also have separate guidelines if you are interested in transferring to Elmira, studying part-time or as a graduate student.
For Freshman applicants, you have two application options to consider: Regular Admission or Early Decision. What is the difference between these two application options? Early Decision applications have earlier deadlines and provide an earlier, binding acceptance decision. If you know Elmira College is where you want to attend, this is a good option for you. Regular Admissions is a rolling admissions program where you should hear a decision from the Admissions Committee within four weeks. International applicants may only apply under the regular admission plan.
If you have any questions about the admissions process, we invite you to contact the Office of Admissions or your Admissions Counselor.
