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.

Sibling Verification

Cornell University requires verification of sibling enrollment in the fall term. If you indicate in your application materials that you have one or more siblings enrolled full-time in an undergraduate degree-seeking program for the upcoming academic year, and we have included your sibling(s) as being in college when calculating your financial aid award, we will verify their enrollment.

We will first attempt to verify your sibling’s enrollment through the National Student Clearinghouse. If we discover that the college or university does not participate with the National Student Clearinghouse, we will email you to ask you to complete a paper form.

Failure to provide requested information by the deadline will result in a revision to your financial aid award to not include your sibling(s) in college.
