Formal athletics programs are not really a part of life at Mildred Elly. However, students who continue on to study at larger four-year institutions will find that they can often participate in sports with those teams, and a number of the clubs on campus at Mildred Elley involve some sort of athletic activity, whether it’s playing informal games of basketball or going for runs.


Mildred Elley has come a long way from its quaint beginnings. Now a private two-year college with a campus in Albany, New York as well as in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the school was initially founded by a local woman who wanted to teach women the skills needed for secretarial positions in the workforce. In 1985, the college decided to branch out from this approach to education, and expanded its programs to include a number of different courses. Mildred Elley has been an accredited two-year college since 1985.

The college is divided into four different schools: The School of Digital Media Arts, the School of Business and Technology, the School of Health and Wellness Professions, and the Extension School. The purpose of the coursework in all four of the schools is to provide students with pertinent career-oriented skills and knowledge that can be applied into today’s job market and workforce. A number of students who complete their two years of study at Mildred Elley go on to other private and state colleges in New York to receive their four-year degrees, thanks to an agreement between Mildred Elley and the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.

In addition to its regular programs, Mildred Elley also has an extensive continuing and professional education program that provides business owners and just about anyone looking to learn with skills, especially with a better understanding of organizational behavior, business law, database management, and even accounting and payroll for workers who may find themselves switching roles throughout the course of their career.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Applying to Mildred Elley is rather simple and straightforward. Incoming students need to provide proof of their completion of high school, be it a high school diploma or a GRE. Tests like the ACT and SAT are not required for admission, but can assist school officials in optimal classroom placement. Additionally, a number of different admissions representatives will sit down with incoming students to determine exactly what program of study they would be best suited for. Applications can be filled out online, and appointments with the admissions office can be scheduled either over the phone, by email, in person, or through an online request form.

Admissions at Mildred Elley is fairly open-ended, with most diligent and dedicated students applying being granted admission to the college. Best of all, applying to and attending Mildred Elley makes transferring to a four-year program in the state of New York a significantly easier endeavor.

Financial Aid

In addition to federal grants and financial aid, students who are attending Mildred Elley are eligible for financial aid and scholarships straight from the school, as well as from New York State. The school’s Office of Financial Aid is the best bet for a first stop on the financial aid process. There, it’s possible to meet with someone who can help you through basically any step of the process. Whether it’s something as simple as finding out what federal grants you’re eligible for or making sure that your FAFSA is filled out properly and will be processed quickly, there is someone who knows how to do it and will make sure you do, too.

Students attending Mildred Elley can benefit from the school’s association with a number of programs that help to cut the cost of attending school, including the Veteran’s Benefits program, the New York State Tuition Assistance Program, or TAP, and the Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant. Students can also apply for PELL Grants and Federal Stafford Loans, as well as PLUS Loans.

In addition to the grants and loans, there is limited work-study available at Mildred Elley, as well as a few different need and merit based scholarships offered through the school itself. It is best to ask someone in the financial aid office for more assistance in either of those areas. Students are also encouraged to do their own independent research into need and merit based scholarships, with counselors willing to help with applications and proof-reading essays.
