Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

The money you pay for this school is well worth it. You get classes that you wouldn't get at any other college, professors and staff that actually know your name and are willing to work with you, and free tutoring.
Megan from Lawrenceville, NJ
One thing is that this college is EXPENSIVE. However they do offer AMAZING scholarships and pretty much everyone here is on some type of scholarship. The quality of the education definitely matches the amount you pay for it.
Christina from New York, NY
Elmira College has a high price tag. I'm paying $47,000 a year in tuition and room and board, and that number is climbing for incoming students. Yet, with that said, that $47,000 a year includes tuition for all 3 trimesters, a dorm room that is larger than most other colleges/universities, money for meals, unlimited tutoring sessions and visits with campus nurses, doctors, therapists and physical therapists. Let us not forget the weight room, pool, an on-campus bowling alley, weekly entertainment, cable TV, internet access, access to on-campus sporting events, money that is used to fund on campus clubs and intramural sports and much more
That's a lot of stuff right? Well, here's the best part. No one ever pays full price. Thanks to donations provided by Alumni and Parents, the school is able to provide deserving students academic based scholarships that range from $10,000 a year to a Full Ride.
Elmira College is one of the best schools in the region, and has one of the best nursing programs in the nation. Elmira's teaching, business and criminal justice programs are also very strong.
Tyler from Rosendale, NY
I do think I am getting the bang for my bucks because i love all the classes i am taking, the professors are really there for you if you have any problem and the English classes are really enjoyable.
The only problem i do see it's that tuition is pretty expensive but the financial aid department is really good and they try everything so that you can attend the college
Maria from Bronx, NY
definitely, every dollar is worth in elmira. elmira college is a breath taking school, as soon as you step foot on campus you see beauty. also elmira is very dedicate to their school color purple and gold, there no other school who is dedicate to their color as this school.
Celida from Bronx, NY
I love Elmira, as do most of my friends. I am receiving a great education and I am gaining a lot of experience in my field. I believe it is definitely worth what I am paying. What is great is that most everyone receives a scholarship to Elmira so it is more affordable! Of course, most people still need financial assistance, but it is not impossible for most people to make a plan and attend Elmira without risking financial troubles.
Stephanie from Cicero, NY
elmira is a more expensive college and scholarships or any kind of funds is helpful for a students attendence. the college keeps an individual very busy on and off of campus; although, the quality of campus life and certain requirements could use improvement, in my opinion.
Blaine from Elmira, NY
The school is a bit expensive, but it is about the normal price for a private school. Since it is a good school and private, so out-of-state people do not have to pay more, a wide diversity of people go to Elmira College. They also offer very good scholarships to help students get a great education.
Mallori from Gregory, MI
Although the cost of this college is quite hefty, their scholarships and financial aid make such an education obainable. When all is added up, Elmira is definantly worth the cost.
