Each July students receive an annual billing statement online, outlining College charges and, if applicable, financial assistance awards. Payment should be made before Aug. 1. Flexible deferred payment options are available, as explained in the student billing notification letter mailed in July notifying students that bills are posted online.
Adjustments are available on a prescribed schedule for students who must leave while College is in session. The number of days of College attendance affects the amount of the adjustment. Students should meet with the Dean of Students prior to leaving campus to complete the withdrawal process. Consult the College Catalogue for the policy.
A non-refundable enrollment deposit of $200 is paid when a student is admitted and decides to attend Cornell. Once a student enrolls, the College retains the deposit until all accounts are closed following graduation or until the student officially withdraws from the College. At the time of graduation or withdrawal, the deposit, less any amount owed to the College, is refunded to the student. An enrolled student who plans to finish the academic year but chooses not to return the following fall, may not participate in room selection activities and must notify the Dean of Students Office by the first Wednesday of Block 8, or the deposit will be forfeited.
