About: Cornell University was founded in 1865 on the radical notion that everyone should have the opportunity to get a college education regardless of their background or their field of study. Our undergraduates embody our founder’s egalitarian spirit and include women and men of nearly every ethnic, religious, and economic background. A member of the Ivy League, Cornell is an acknowledged center for discovery, academic leadership, and service, a true world treasure.
Admission Info: Admission to Cornell is highly selective. Typically, more than 30,000 students apply for 3,000 places in the first-year class. And around 600 transfers enroll each fall from an applicant pool of close to 2,000 students. We hope that you will consider Cornell as you begin your college search process. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
Scholarship/Financial Aid: Building on our founder’s vision and the university’s long history of need-blind admissions and need-based aid, Cornell continues to strive to provide access to students regardless of economic circumstances. A new financial aid initiative makes it possible for even more students to graduate debt-free. In the 2009-2010 academic year, need-based loans for all undergraduates from families with total incomes below $75,000 will be eliminated. Need-based loans will be capped at $3,000 annually for students from families with total incomes between $75,000 and $120,000. Cornell’s financial aid program will make it possible for students from diverse economic backgrounds to attend Cornell.
