Beginning on January 1, 2013, you can reapply for financial aid for the 2013-2014 school year using the Renewal FAFSA on the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Cornell's priority deadline for returning students to file the FAFSA is April 1. While it is our goal to make it financially feasible for all students to return to Cornell, any student who submits his or her financial assistance application or the institutional application after April 1 will be awarded on a “funds as available” basis.
