The university will have a process for new students to provide proof of vaccination and meet other requirements ahead of the Fall 2021 semester. We anticipate this will launch later this summer and will keep you informed.
Cornell announced on May 18, 2021 that it will accept all vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the European Medical Association, and the World Health Organization.
You will be expected to be vaccinated as soon after your arrival as possible, and will be eligible for vaccination locally. We encourage incoming international students who are not yet vaccinated to plan to arrive as early as possible to allow ample time for vaccination prior to our August 8 program start.
