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.
