Cornell has a Financial Aid Calculator to provide families with an estimated eligibility of need-based financial aid. The calculator is intended for applicants living and working in the U.S. Please note that you will need your most recent income tax return (for both the parents and the student), earnings statements, and bank statements. The more accurate the information that you provide, the better the estimate will be. These are estimates only; the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment is the final authority on your calculated family contribution.
