Our unique financial aid initiatives exemplify our commitment to providing need-based aid and making Cornell affordable for admitted students. 

Parent Contribution Initiative

Families with a total family income of less than $60,000, and total assets of less than $100,000 (including primary home equity), will have no parent contribution. Learn more.

Loan Initiatives

Students from families with a total annual income under $60,000 will have no student loans as part of their financial aid package, reducing the debt owed by the student and/or family after graduation. Learn more.

Award Matching Initiative

Cornell strives to match the family contribution components and lower loan level of financial aid offers from other Ivy League schools, as well as need-based offers from Stanford, MIT, and Duke.

Learning to manage your money is a critical life skill. Your college years should be a time when you are mastering the art of budgeting and preparing for the years to come when you can save and invest for your future.
