Get to know us!

At this time, formal campus tours and in-person information sessions are not offered, and the undergraduate admissions offices across Cornell University encourage prospective students, their families, and advocates to meet virtually through live sessions and recordings posted on our websites. Cornell has experienced great success with virtual outreach, bringing information and connection to students all around the world, and expects to continue these activities. Carefully review Cornell University's information for visitors.  

The College of Human Ecology (CHE) Office of Admissions is closed to foot traffic until further notice.

Please note that Cornell University does not track demonstrated interest. Visiting campus is not required nor expected of applicants. Students can articulate their fit and interest in Cornell through specific essay questions in the application.
