Welcome Message from Shawn Felton, the University’s Executive Director of Undergraduate Admissions
Greetings from Cornell University Undergraduate Admissions! We appreciate the partnership and support of our counseling colleagues in the US and around the world in engaging and advising students interested in the living and learning communities, opportunities, and experiences at this extraordinary university. The uniqueness of Cornell is born of its unparalleled academic breadth and depth, and its uncommon and historic commitment to far-reaching diversity.
We look forward to helping you help your students better understand what we do at Cornell, so that they find and consider those opportunities that match their interests and provide a rewarding experience. We hope to demystify the selective admissions process and provide greater transparency and understanding through helpful and timely information. See our undergraduate admissions online directory to connect with university admissions representatives responsible for your region, country, or state, and to ask questions about the undergraduate admissions application process, majors offered in each of the undergraduate colleges and schools, and the Cornell student experience. You can also find critical updates and information to share with students and families in our monthly counselor newsletters, linked on this webpage. Please also take advantage of our Virtual Visit website and its engaging, on-demand content and programming to learn more about us.
