Welcome, MPS – Management Class of 2024! There are several items you must complete before you begin your program:
To accept your offer of admission, please log in to your ApplyWeb account, and select your Cornell application for graduate admission. Click the button labeled “Complete your Decision Form,” and follow the instructions.
Please take note of the amount of time you have to submit your decision. If you know your decision before your offer deadline, earlier confirmation is always appreciated as we build our incoming class. A non-refundable deposit of $1,500 is required when you accept your offer online.
If your offer of admission was conditional, please carefully review your offer letter and complete your requirements by the stated deadline. Once you are finished, please send documentation of completion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All admitted MPS – Management students are required to submit an official college transcript indicating conferral of their undergraduate degree, as well as official test score reports.
Official transcripts should be sent directly to the Graduate School Admissions Office by your undergraduate institution (or their service partner) by January 15. Electronic submissions are required. Learn more.
Still have questions? Please see the Graduate School’s Admissions and Admitted Student FAQs.
Review and complete the To Do List for graduate and professional students on Cornell’s New Students website. It is particularly important to complete the Health History & Immunization Compliance and the Student ID Card Request in a timely manner.
As a residential MPS – Management student, you will automatically be enrolled in Cornell’s Student Health Plan (SHP). Students with partners or families can enroll their dependents in SHP. The university also offers optional student dental and vision plans.
Some students may be eligible to waive the SHP requirement if they meet certain criteria. To review your eligibility and to submit a waiver application, visit the Student Health Benefits website. (Please note that waivers are extremely limited for international students.)
If you do waive your coverage, you will be assessed a university health fee each semester. This allows nearly all students to access Cornell Health with a modest copay.
Questions about health insurance or coverage should be directed to Student Health Benefits.
If you will need disability accommodations or services at Cornell, please register with Cornell’s Student Disability Services office before you arrive on campus. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
Your degree is a strategic investment in your future. Familiarize yourself with financial aid opportunities and policies, research your financing options, and make a plan.

The email will indicate your estimated costs of attendance and the total funds you will need to certify. If you plan to attend Cornell on a student visa, you must complete and submit the online form before Cornell can issue your Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20 or DS-2019) for your visa application.
