Update: Given public health concerns related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health, and per executive orders by the Governor of New York, the Cornell University has implemented enhanced policies. Additional information is available on Cornell's coronavirus webpage. On campus tours and information sessions are cancelled until further notice. 

The College of Human Ecology Office of Admissions is also closed to foot traffic until further notice. You can contact us via email with questions. Visit MeetEzra for frequently asked questions about undergraduate admissions.

Prospective first-year applicants 
Spend some time watching our recorded College of Human Ecology information sessions and tour. University tours and information sessions are also available online.  

Prospective external transfer applicants
We are not scheduling appointments until further notice, but you can email us with your questions. Carefully review our required preparatory coursework in the meantime. 

Prospective internal transfer applicants (currently enrolled Cornell University undergraduates in another undergraduate unit)
Review our internal transfer information for details about the internal transfer process, including course requirements.

Contacting faculty directly is discouraged, unless you are interested in our design majors. Those interested in Design + Environmental Analysis can email the D+EA Academic Program Coordinator with questions; those interested in Fashion Design & Management can email the department with questions.

The College of Human Ecology Admissions Office offers the best context for program/major, College, and admissions information regardless of your major of interest.
