We at Elmira College recognize that planning for financing your education is a vital part of your college search process. If you are not concerned about how to pay the bills for college, your parents are probably concerned enough for both of you. We work to make an Elmira education affordable for students, but we need your help in accomplishing that goal. You should begin this process by having an honest family conversation about affordability. The first step for your family should be completing the Elmira College Net Price Calculator. The federal government requires that colleges make this tool available to you and your family for good reasons. You want to learn just how much you will have to contribute to the cost of your education. Most families are very surprised at how much financial aid Elmira College is able to offer students. Then begin the financial aid application process by visiting the Financial Aid section of our web site. Do not count us out and let the sticker price scare you away from a private college education that provides individual attention to you!
