We are very excited to present a new way for students and families to learn about the “real” cost of Cornell University. Working with the software vendor, ThinkAhead, LLC, we have prepared our Financial Aid Estimator. We hope that this tool can help families close to college enrollment as well as those planning well ahead. Since many academic plans are laid out in 7th and 8th grade, this tool can be used by families with younger children to gain further insight into what Cornell might cost them in the future.
Our Estimator works best when you can provide it with very accurate information by using your latest tax returns, W-2 statements, and current estimates of asset values (such as stock value and home value).
To get started with the Estimator, please return to the financial aid home page at www.finaid.cornell.edu.
Good luck as you explore the higher education landscape.
