Welcome Newly Admitted Students!
Please review the following information about financial aid at Cornell. If you have any questions about the admissions’ process or your status as an admitted student, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s important to review and understand your financial aid package so that you can confidently accept Cornell’s offer of admission. The information below can help answer some of the questions you might have.
If you have been admitted and applied for financial aid, you will receive one of the following notifications:
an aid decision outlining your financial aid eligibility, if you completed all financial aid requirements
an email indicating items are missing from your application for financial aid.
Accepting your aid offer: There is no need to accept institutional or federal grants. Admitted applicants that submit a deposit will be contacted in the spring with information detailing how to accept or decline their loans, complete Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Notes. We’ll be in touch!
Talk with your family: You'll want to talk with your family about how your family contribution will be paid or financed. You will be billed your fall charges in July, to be paid by August 7, and you will be billed spring charges in December, to be paid by January 7.
Watch for emails from us: We communicate primarily with you (the student) via email to your Cornell email address or, while an applicant, to the email supplied on your admissions/ FAFSA application. Common items for us to email students about include verifying sibling(s) enrollment in college, loan promissory notes and entrance counseling, and reapplying for aid for future years.
