Newly admitted students pay an enrollment deposit of $300 to reserve a place in the entering class.

  1. Of the $300 paid, $100 is an orientation fee and $200 is the enrollment deposit.
  2. When a student withdraws according to the College Catalogue (by not registering for classes or participating in room draw for the following year and notifying the Dean of Students that they intend to withdraw by the deadline stated in the College Catalogue), they are eligible for a refund of the $200 deposit.
  3. The $200 deposit is applied to the student’s account to pay any outstanding balance: any remaining credit will be returned to the student via check mailed to the home address on file approximately two block cycles after the date of withdrawal.
  4. When a student graduates, the deposit is applied to the student account in June to pay any outstanding charges applied to the student account. The remainder is returned to the student via ACH direct deposit or at the home address Cornell has on file in mid to late June.
