Can someone clarify the age qualification for US Presidents?

Can the candidate for the US Presidency be 34 up until the day of the election, or does he/she have to be 35 when he decides to enter in the running?

    The Constitution merely states age 35 to be president. One would have to be that age before accepting office.
