A note about financial aid

If receive financial aid from Cornell, your award will be based upon the estimated cost of attendance, which – for many students – includes $179 per semester toward "health-related costs." This $179/semester contribution does NOT apply to students enrolled in SHP-M, however, because your healthcare costs should be covered through your plan. Please consult the Financial Aid Information for Newly Admitted Students for more information.
