Application Options

Application Plans

We offer two admissions plans for freshman applicants: Early Action and Regular (Rolling) Admission.
International students may apply only under the Regular Admission program.

Early Action

If Elmira College is a top choice college, Early Action may be the program for you. If you want to receive an early admission decision from us, you may want to consider applying via our Early Action plan.  The Early Action deadline is November 1 and you will receive a decision by November 15.

Regular (Rolling) Admission

The regular admission plan at Elmira offers rolling admission. This means that we will review applications on an ongoing basis and will begin to notify applicants of our decisions in early December. We are usually able to notify you of our decision regarding your application within four weeks of the date your application file becomes complete.

Here is what you do to apply to Elmira College:

While not required, we strongly suggest you sit down with an Elmira College admissions counselor for an interview. You can schedule your interview by calling the Office of Admissions at 800-935-6472 (or 607-735-1724).
