Information for Continuing Students Renewing Their Aid Application for the 2020-21 Academic Year

Continuing domestic students renewing their financial aid application for the 2020-21 academic year only need to complete the FAFSA to begin their application. 

In the event supporting documentation is needed, students will be contacted through their Cornell email address with requirements and login details for IDOC, where documents should be submitted. IDOC is a service that processes aid application materials and the upload tool should be used for fastest service. The IDOC submission process has begun for the 2020-21 academic year. 

Please pay close attention to any instructions received from our office and respond as soon as possible to prevent any delays in your application review. If you have completed the FAFSA by the March 1st, 2020, deadline and do not hear from us or see additional requirements on your Student Center To Do List, you can expect to be notified with an aid offer beginning in May. 

For further instructions please visit our 2020-21 Financial Aid Application Process Requirements or view your Student Center To Do List
