Professionally, the health care services industry, the manufacturing industry, and the insurance and financial services industry are popular business areas among Elmira College alumni. The banking industry registers as the most common industry among alumni. Less than ten percent of Elmira College grads move into the insurance and financial services industry — it is the road least traveled for this demographic. Salaries are quite modest for Elmira College alumni, inconsistent with the impressive SAT results reported by this group. Following graduation, Elmira College students earn an average of $42K.


It's worth noting that female graduates earn a median salary of $50K whereas the men's median is about $71K.


Many Elmira College grads end up living in Corning, N.Y., deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. It is no surprise that Denver, Colo., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is approximately $125K), is another of the most popular spots for former Elmira College students. Hornell, N.Y. is a popular spot for former Elmira College students at the opposite end of the pay scale; in fact, average salaries there are the lowest at $30K. Nearby Elmira, N.Y. is also a top pick for Elmira College grads, as is Boston, Mass.

Degree Major

A B.A. in Psychology will compensate Elmira College grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in $103K on average per year. A Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of around $30K.


For Elmira College grads, proficiency in Home Health/Home Care warrants a paycheck that is 198 percent more than other alumni salaries. Slightly less than one-fifth of Elmira College grads wind up using Project Management at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Customer Service, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Excel are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only two-fifths of alumni are paid for vacation and just one in three grads for sick time. More than half of graduates receive health insurance, and more than half of survey participants get dental coverage. A majority of respondents set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). Other benefits that Elmira College alumni receive are flexible hours, a company-subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and 401(a).
