Plan Your Visit

Cornell University encourages 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. You can also learn more through our FAQ page and reach us through our campus email addresses or by telephone with questions. 

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.

As of July 30, 2021, all faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to wear masks while inside campus buildings or facilities, regardless of vaccination status. We regret that due to campus COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to welcome visitors into our classrooms at this time.
