Paying for college

Finish strong

Cornell College is consistently classified as a “Best Buy” and is a smart investment. With fewer course scheduling conflicts and never needing to drop a course due to an overload, the block plan makes finishing in four years the norm. While others are still in school paying tuition, you will be out earning an income—a double benefit.

When you apply to Cornell, we use your application for admission to award merit-based academic scholarships—no extra paperwork needed. (You're welcome.)

"Cornell was the first college that accepted me, along with a generous scholarship. As I waited to hear back from a few other schools I had applied to, I realized that when I was thinking about myself in college I had been imagining myself at Cornell, and that was how I knew Cornell was the right choice." - Maddie Politte-Corn, '20
