Cornell University welcomes applications from participants in the Leadership Scholar Program. Please note that the endorsement of the LSP does NOT guarantee admission through the Leadership Scholar Program.
Cornell Deadlines: For freshman candidates, the Early Decision (ED) application deadline is November 1st, and the Regular Decision (RD) deadline is January 2nd. Deadlines for transfer candidates are October 1 (Spring Term) and March 1 (Fall Term).
Application fee: $75.00 for freshman and transfer applicants.
SAT/ACT: Cornell requires either the SAT or ACT (with Writing) AND SAT Subject Tests (in most cases). Specific requirements can be found on Cornell’s website: http://admissions.cornell.edu/apply/transfer-applicants/admission-requirements
Yellow Ribbon participant: Cornell University is a Yellow Ribbon school.
Transfer Credit policies: Each of Cornell’s undergraduate colleges and schools evaluates transfer credits on a case-by- case basis. Most will allow you to transfer up to 60 semester credits. Because Cornell is on a semester system, quarter hours will be converted to semester hours; each quarter credit is usually equal to two-thirds of a semester credit.
You’ll probably receive transfer credit for college courses that you passed with a C or better and that closely parallel those in the curriculum of your college at Cornell (or occasionally in some of the other colleges’ curricula). In most cases, your transfer credits will be applied to your distribution requirements or electives—see Courses of Study, available online at courses.cornell.edu, for a complete list of those requirements.
