What is the admissions process of non-traditional students?

All applicants for matriculated undergraduate study at Cornell are categorized as either first-year applicants or transfer applicants. We do not have a separate process through which non-traditional students apply for admission.  


Students should submit their application using the Common Application (CA), which can be completed and submitted online. Cornell also requires a Writing Supplement. The Cornell undergraduate college or school a student applies to may have additional requirements, such as a personal interview, a portfolio, or a design submission. To learn more about the college-specific additional requirements, please see the college and school admissions requirements website. For additional information about applying, please be sure to review the first-year application checklist or the transfer application checklist.
