Important Information: The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment is now open and is accepting in person and virtual appointments.

The Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment is working diligently to notify students who are still awaiting the results of their 2021-22 financial aid application. We acknowledge the additional stress this is causing and appreciate your patience.

Cornell University began distributing the third round of HEERF Emergency Grants on September 13, 2021. Funds do not impact financial aid eligibility and are being processed as refunds directly through the Bursar’s Office. You can find additional information about the allocation and delivery of HEERF Emergency Grants on the Cornell University COVID-19 Response page, under HEERF Emergency Funding, which is updated regularly to describe new developments in funding and awarding: Please email if you have any questions.

New York State Residents

Cornell offers financial aid to meet the needs of all New York state residents. For in-state residents, the cost of tuition depends on which undergraduate college you enroll in. The following are sample financial aid packages for three in-state families. The profiles provide an overview of how each financial aid package was developed. Please keep in mind that each family’s situation is unique and needs to be reviewed during the application process to determine final eligibility.
