What tuition and fees will I pay?

We will work with you to achieve a similar net cost for tuition and mandatory fees compared to what you were paying when enrolled at Cazenovia during the 2022-23 academic year.

Will my financial aid package transfer?

Our Financial Aid team will work with you to determine your financial aid package. Cazenovia transfer students are eligible to receive scholarships and financial aid, including need-based grants. Our Financial Aid team will work to meet the net costs from Cazenovia College for the 2022-23 academic year through a combination of merit and need-based aid. To apply for all aid available through Elmira College, incoming students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with institution code 002718. After submitting the FAFSA and a copy of your 2022-23 Cazenovia College financial aid award, students will receive notification of their 2023-24 financial aid awards from Elmira College. Students will also be eligible to apply for undergraduate level federal and state aid (e.g., Pell, TAP). Our Admission and Financial Aid teams will work in tandem with you throughout your transition process to ensure you are maximizing the amount of gift aid available to you.

I’m a HEOP, TRIO/Reach student, do I get to maintain that at Elmira?

Elmira is not a HEOP, TRIO/Reach school but we will review your financial aid package and
work with you on your financial aid options to maximize the amount of gift aid available to you.

When are my transfer materials due to Elmira?

We’ve simplified the process of applying to transition to Elmira and encourage you to provide your materials as soon as possible. Not only will you get your decision sooner, this will also allow our team to help you register for the courses that fulfill your degree requirements.

Will all of my Cazenovia credits transfer?

Cazenovia students in good academic standing at Cazenovia College are eligible for admission to a similar program at Elmira. Courses with a grade of C or better will transfer as credit to Elmira. You will work one-on-one with Dr. Dan Kjar to help with the transition.

I’m a student-athlete. Can I compete at Elmira?

EC offers 16 varsity athletics teams, including seven men's and seven women's teams and two co-ed teams. If you're interested in playing, let us know on your Cazenovia Transfer Form, or contact a coach directly.

When would I choose my courses for Fall 2023?

Registration for Fall 2023 courses begins in March 2023. We recommend submitting your transfer materials as soon as possible. Once your transfer materials have been submitted, Dr. Kjar will work with you to get registered and provide guidance for the Fall 2023 term and beyond.

Am I guaranteed housing at Elmira?

Yes. While Elmira is a residential college and generally undergraduate students are required to live on campus, this residency requirement is waived for Cazenovia students transferring under the Teach-Out Agreement. However, it's in the residence halls where you will make friends and find support systems that can last a lifetime. EC has five traditional residence halls plus apartment-style options in the Twin Towers and the Cottages. Visit our Housing page to learn more about our residence halls. Special housing options include gender inclusive and pet-friendly residence halls.

I’m a senior. What if I can’t get into a course that I need to graduate on time in Spring 2024?

We give priority to seniors to complete their coursework on time.

When is Commencement 2024?

June 2, 2024

What’s the easiest way to check out the campus?

Whether or not you’ve completed the transfer form, campus visits can be arranged through our visitation page. During your visit you’ll be able to sit in on a class, meet with current students from your program of interest and connect with available faculty within your major.
