How to Apply

Cornell uses the Common Application (CA) or the Universal College Application (UCA), both of which can be completed and submitted online. Students will choose one format to submit all required application materials. Please do not mix-and-match or duplicate CA and UCA submitted application forms.

The School Report 

Your counselor or designated school official should submit this form (or your school’s own report form) and your official transcript on your behalf.

Counselor Recommendation 

Cornell requires a written statement from your guidance counselor or college advisor.

Teacher Evaluations 

You are required to submit two teacher recommendations. Be sure to remind individuals writing letters for you to include your name and date of birth on all pages if they are sending them by mail.

Midyear Report 

Submit the Midyear Report as soon after the application deadline as possible. We strongly encourage guidance counselors to submit this online too, so we can process your application faster. We understand that some students with schools on trimesters may not have any new grade information to report at the time of submission, and therefore do not need to send a Midyear Report.

Official Transcript

Official Transcript is required to be mailed to the university for admission.
