Important Information: The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment has transitioned to a fully remote model of engagement. Assistance will continue uninterrupted via email, phone, and our secure document uploads. For more information see our message about continuing operations remotely

We encourage you to review our Fall 2020 Semester FAQ for the most up to date information about financial aid. For more information specific to the impact of coronavirus across the University, please view Cornell's Coronavirus FAQ

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.

Financial Aid Calculator

This tool may help provide you with estimated eligibility of need-based financial aid from Cornell. Before entering your income and asset information, please keep in mind:

  • The calculator is intended for undergraduate applicants living and working in the U.S.
  • All estimated financial aid is based on demonstrated financial need; there are no merit-based awards available from Cornell.
  • The resulting information is only as reliable as the data you provide.
  • These are estimates only; the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment is the final authority on your calculated family contribution.
  • If parents are divorced, separated or were never married, both households (including stepparents) should run separate calculations and the combined results are the estimated expected family contribution. Cornell applies a proportional methodology to remarried parents.
