Appealing Your Aid Decision

You can appeal your financial aid decision if you feel there are extenuating circumstances. Submit the Appeal Application and necessary documentation along with an explanation of your circumstances.


Watch our video about the appeal process, and check out our Cornell Cast channel for more helpful videos.

Note: International students who received financial aid and want to appeal the decision should email intl-finaid@cornell.edu. There is no appeal process for international students who were not selected to receive financial aid.
