Sibling Verification

Cornell University requires verification of sibling enrollment in the fall term. If you indicate in your application materials that you have one or more siblings enrolled in college for the upcoming academic year, and we have included your sibling(s) as being in college when calculating your financial aid award, we will verify their enrollment.

We will contact you via your Cornell email address and provide a weblink to a form. The information you provide on the form will allow us (in most cases) to verify your sibling’s enrollment through the National Student Clearinghouse. If we discover that the college or university does not participate with the National Student Clearinghouse, we will email you to ask you to complete a paper form.

Failure to provide this information by the deadline indicated in our initial email will result in a revision to your financial aid award to not include your sibling(s) in college.
