Fall Transfer

We want to take this opportunity to provide you with some information that might be helpful as you take steps to become a full-fledged member of the Cornell community. 

First: You need to reserve your place in the class.

Please confirm your acceptance of our offer by submitting your $400 deposit. IMPORTANT: The enrollment deposit is due within 30 days of the date of the admission offer. It is important to send in the deposit by the due date to receive a housing assignment.

If you are applying for financial aid, please make certain you have received your financial aid package before you make a decision about enrolling at Cornell. Your deposit will be credited to your bursar account in your first semester of enrollment at Cornell.

Second: If you have applied for financial aid (or are thinking of applying), read on. 

You will receive an award from the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment if you have completed the financial aid application process. If you met the March 15 deadline for submitting your financial aid application materials, you can expect to receive notification very soon.

We encourage you to contact the financial aid office directly (607.255.5145 or finaid@cornell.edu) if you have any questions about your financial aid award or application process.
