Four Quick Tips

  • Don’t focus on the “published” cost of college. Elmira College offers merit awards and need-based aid. Be sure to look at the final cost once you receive your award offer from the Office of Financial Aid.
  • Your grades are important. Elmira College merit scholarships and awards are determined by the Office of Admissions and based, in part, on your high school grade point average. The earlier you apply for admission the earlier you will know your award! 
  • Merit awards are not the only source of assistance. Elmira College also offers need-based grants. To learn if you are eligible for need-based grants, complete your aid application now!  Once you are accepted for admission, we will mail an official aid offer.
  •  Don’t leave money on the table. Go to your high school guidance office and research private sources of aid or click here to get started now.
