Please be mindful of phishing attempts regarding CARES Act Funding and Student Employment opportunities. To verify phishing attempts, please reference the Cornell IT Security Phish Bowl. Cornell employers will not send electronic payroll checks by email and will not ask students to make gift card purchases on their behalf.

Check Application Status

Please note that it can take 3-5 days to process materials. If you are not able to login after 5 days from your application being submitted, please contact applicant@cornell.edu.

The financial aid checklist is not active for international students, you will not see any items listed there. Only the CSS Profile is required to apply for international financial aid. If any other information is needed we will contact you directly.
