English Language Proficiency Test

Applicants whose native language is not English must take the TOEFL and submit the official score to Cornell. Only students who have studied for two or more years at a college or university where English is the language of instruction located in a country where English is the native language are exempt from the TOEFL.

TOEFL scores must be sent directly to:

  • Cornell University School Code: 2098
  • Public Affairs Department Code: 80

Application Protocol

CIPA Admissions faculty and staff will not communicate with third-party organizations regarding the status of an applicant. Applicants must submit a personal e-mail address and a home street address to which correspondence may be sent, as well as a home or cell phone number where they may be reached. When submitting admission material, applicants must verify that they have written their own statement of purpose and that all supporting documentation is legitimate.

Cornell University expects all applicants to complete their application materials without the use of paid agents, credentials services, or other paid professional assistance. The use of such services violates University policy, and may lead to the rejection of application materials, the revocation of an admissions offer, cancellation of admission, or involuntary withdrawal from the University.
