Review and complete the To Do List for graduate and professional students on Cornell’s New Students website. Please note – the current To Do List is for spring 2020 entry. One-Year Program students need to complete the fall 2020 list, which will be available in April. It is particularly important for you to complete the Health History & Immunization Compliance and the Student ID Card Request in a timely manner once the fall 2020 list is available.
As a residential MBA 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. In 2019 – 2020 this fee was US$179 per semester.
Questions about health insurance or coverage should be directed to Student Health Benefits. Coverage for the One-Year MBA Class of 2021 will begin on May 1, 2020.
Prepare for the fast-paced summer core curriculum by completing your mandatory pre-work before you arrive.
