Current Students Applying for or Renewing Aid

We strive to keep your financial aid offer as consistent as possible year to year and ask as a returning student you only submit the FAFSA. Please do not submit a CSS PROFILE, unless the Financial Aid Office specifically requests one. We will use the information submitted through the FAFSA to determine if you have significant changes to your family income compared to the prior financial aid application. If additional information is needed, we will reach out once your FAFSA eligibility has been reviewed.

Steps to Renew Your Financial Aid Application:

  1. FAFSA (Cornell’s FAFSA code is 002711)
  2. Other documents only if specifically requested by the Financial Aid Office

*The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment will use the FAFSA data to determine if your financial circumstances have remained consistent. If there are significant changes, we will ask for additional information to assess an updated family contribution. If you feel like the FAFSA alone does not capture recent changes to your family’s circumstances, please complete a Financial Aid Appeal.
