Tuition and Financial Aid
The Cornell Graduate School has updated information on tuition and cost of living expenses. The Cornell Financial Aid Office handles all federal loan information.
Tuition for the 2013-2014 academic year is $22,765 per semester ($45,130 per year).
Student Health Insurance is $2,212 per year for an individual student (family rates are available).
The Graduate School estimates room and board costs at $16,200 per year, books and supplies around $1,330. Your personal expenses will vary and we suggest that you budget an additional $6,000 per year. Click here for further information.
The Cornell Institute for Public Affairs provides some funding to more than 80 percent of its Fellows. The institute itself, however, is unable to provide anyone with full support. Program fellows often win fellowships from Fulbright, Truman, the World Bank, and other programs.
We encourage you to explore all available sources of external funding, including grants provided by current employers. Decisions on institute funding are determined on a rolling basis following admissions decisions.
