Cornell Provides Tool for Early Estimate of Aid Eligibility

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

Good luck as you explore the higher education landscape.

    With the ever growing cost of higher ed it is nice to see that universities are adding tools like your Financial Aid Estimator to help potential students with financial aid choices.

    Financial aid seems complicated. I use sites like and to get information that is not lender driven, but this early estimate seems to give me a clearer picture for my specific situation. Thanks!


    I wanted to inquire about the Financial Aid , whether it is available for the Masters in Management in Hospitality program ( MMH ).
    If yes , then how am I , an Indian national , eligible for the same?
    If not , then are there any provision for any educational loan ( at lower rate of interest ) that I can avail of?
    Please do let me know!

    Students may receive financial aid if they qualify for federal, state, private and institutional eligibility criteria. Students must be in good academic standing with the institution and meet qualitative and quantitative measurements.

    I teach at TAFE colleges in Melbourne, Australia. I may be wrong, but I am not aware of any financial aid awarded to students in any of the facilities I taught. You sound far more progresive.
