Elmira College has always valued education that includes the perspectives of diverse people. A large part of this commitment involves welcoming international students to our campus.

We are licensed to educate international students and seven percent of our student body comes from 20 countries outside the United States.

Our small student/faculty ratio (10:1) makes it possible for all students, U.S. and international alike, to get the attention they need to succeed. Meet with faculty one-on-one, ask questions in class, and learn what a small American community is all about - people helping each other make the most out of their lives.

We also offer rigorous academic programs, 70+ student organizations, and a Director of Campus Engagement to help ease your transition to college.
