Cost to Attend

Costs & Affordability

Whether you’re starting your college search or adding the finishing touches to your application essay, there’s good news: financial aid can significantly lower the cost of attending.  Cornell’s student aid programs ensure a world-class university experience is accessible and affordable for all eligible students.

What is included in your Estimated Cost of Attendance?

Cornell’s bluebet sportsbookincludes costs billed by the university (such as tuition and fees), and non-billed costs (such as books and personal expenses) a typical, full-time student may encounter in a traditional academic year – fall and spring semesters (such as books, course materials, personal expenses, and transportation).

The estimated cost of attendance, sometimes called the “sticker price,bluebet sportsbook” is not the price an eligible financial aid applicant pays to attend Cornell. Rather, it is an estimate of the total costs to attend before financial aid is applied.

Your estimated cost of attendance is tailored specifically for you each academic year based on a variety of information provided in your annual aid application materials, including: your undergraduate college, academic program, New York state residency, and on- or off-campus housing plans, and other factors.
