Why is our deadline important?
We want you to have all the information you need before making the choice to attend Cornell. Meeting the aid application deadline will ensure that your financial aid offer is available when you receive your admissions decision. If you do not apply by our stated deadline, your offer may be delayed.
Note that financial aid deadlines may differ from admissions deadlines.
