The Value of an Elmira Education Stands the Test of Time
Students who matriculate as a full-time student pay the full-time tuition rate ($33,900 plus $1,500 comprehensive fee). Dependent part-time students will pay $983 per credit hour. Freshmen and upperclassmen enrolling in more than 18 credit hours during fall or winter, or more than 7.5 credit hours for the Spring term will be billed $983 per credit hour in addition to the full-time tuition rate. Full-time students wishing to transfer to part-time status may be considered for the part-time tuition rate (as referred to below) following an absence from campus of at least one full calendar year.
Effective July 1, 2017, status appeals for current full-time students wishing to take a part-time credit load in Fall 2017-18 and beyond, will no longer be approved for the part-time rate of $450/credit unless they are absent from the college for one full calendar year.
Independent students who first enter Elmira College as a part-time student pay the part-time tuition rate (currently $450 per credit hour). Part-time status is defined as enrolling in fewer than 9 credits during a fall or winter term or less than 4 credits during Term III. Part-time students who enroll in 9 credits during a fall or winter term or 4 or more credits during Term III will be charged the full-time tuition as detailed above.
