Cornell University Tuition Fees 2023-2024 Academic Year

The path to college can be overwhelming, whether you are making any last-minute adjustments to your application or just beginning your search. But knowing the available financial aid options and the cost of attendance – shouldn’t be.


The estimated cost of attendance at Cornell University is based on fees, tuition, books, supplies, personal items, dining, and housing for a full-time student attending both spring and fall semesters.

This price varies depending on a number of criteria, such as the undergraduate institution you apply to and where you will be living especially if you live in New York state.

The amount many students will pay each year will be greatly reduced if they apply for financial aid. Cornell grants play a significant role in the financial aid packages.


For first-year students, the average Cornell grant amount ranged from $43,250 to $72,800. Additionally, loans and work-study funds that students earn throughout the academic year are used to lower the overall cost.

The figures below provide an estimated cost to attend Cornell for the 2023-2024 academic year. Below is the estimated cost of attendance.
