Information for International Accepted Students

International students have been a part of the student body at Cornell since the university enrolled its first class in the mid-1800s. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus community.

What Happens Next?

After you reserve your place at Cornell, we will provide you with more information regarding your enrollment. You will learn about the programs, facilities, and services that you will have access to, and we will provide you with instructions on the next steps you must take to complete your enrollment at Cornell.

If you will require an I-20 form (Certificate of Eligibility for a Student Status Visa), we must receive certification that you will have sufficient financial resources at your disposal for the entire period of time you are enrolled at Cornell. Your Declaration of Finances form must be completed and returned as soon as possible. Upon receipt of the Declaration of Finances form and your enrollment deposit, we will send you the I-20 form, which you must take with you when you apply to the American Embassy or Consulate for a visa.

Complete and return these forms:
