Discretionary lifestyle choices cannot
be subsidized by federal OR private education loans. Additional
expenses, listed below, can be used to increase the financial aid budget
on a case-by-case basis after discussion with the Financial Aid Office.
- Computer (one-time only)
- Travel Allowance
- International Course Trips for credit
- Dependent Child Care
Please note that eligibility for Federal student aid is based on a
single student budget. Increases to cost of living for a spouse and/or
children can be requested. Any increase would be funded through a
non-federal loan program.
Cornell University Bursar Procedures
Most University charges and credits are processed through the University Bursar system. Tuition is billed on a semester basis.
Your fall semester tuition bill will be available online mid-July and
due by August 7. Note that for the One-Year MBA programs, summer tuition
bills will be available online in April/May. Your fall (or summer)
tuition bill must be paid to register. Your admissions deposit will be
credited against your first semester tuition amount. All financial aid
is disbursed in two equal installments and credits to a student bursar
account. If any of these funds result in a credit balance to your
account, the credit will be refunded to you after university
registration which occurs late August. You will receive instructions on
how to sign up for financial aid refunds using direct deposit once you
receive your electronic tuition statement mid July.
Cornell offers online payment with Cornell Net.Pay and a monthly installment plan. Please visit their web site http://www.bursar.cornell.edu for more information.
