Important Note for First-Year Applicants

For all students who plan to enroll, we require that final grades be sent directly from the high school. In addition, we may be contacting you to verify transcript authenticity when we conduct audits. The Undergraduate Admissions Office at Cornell University conducts audits to verify the authenticity of final transcripts from a random sampling of entering first-year students.
