2007 Transfer Application Instructions and Application Checklist

Important Information for Cornell Transfer Applicants
We are pleased that you are considering applying to Cornell University. Our admissions committees review application materials thoughtfully and thoroughly. We look forward to receiving your application and getting to know you. The Cornell transfer application consists of: • the Transfer Common Application, which Cornell uses exclusively • a $70 application fee or waiver • the Cornell University Transfer Supplement to the Transfer Common Application, which is required of all applicants. It includes important Cornellspecific information and required essays • the 2007 Transfer Financial Aid Application (for applicants planning to apply for financial aid) It is important that you submit your Transfer Common Application and fee as soon as possible. The Cornell University Transfer Supplement can be sent at the same time or later, but do not delay: your Cornell University Transfer Supplement identifies the college to which you are applying, and the sooner we have this information, the sooner we can forward your file to the appropriate committee for review.

There are two ways to apply: online or on paper.
We strongly encourage you to apply online to expedite the processing of your application and to better serve you. Whichever method you choose, you must submit all components the same way. Students who submit the Transfer Common Application online must pay online (unless requesting a fee waiver), and must submit the Cornell University Transfer Supplement online. Students who submit their Transfer Common Application on paper must pay by check or money order and must submit the Cornell University Transfer Supplement on paper as well (see instructions for correct addresses). All additional materials (financial aid application, transcripts, instructor evaluations, etc.) should be sent to the Application Processing Center. You can submit the Transfer Common Application to Cornell using: • the online version at www.commonapp.org • the PDF version on Cornell’s web site at admissions.cornell.edu (print and mail to us) • the paper copy included in this booklet. Neatly handwritten, printed, or typed responses to the questions on the paper appliction are acceptable. Please include your name, home address, and U.S. Social Security number or date of birth on all attached sheets. Please note: You only need to complete and submit the Transfer Common Application with the application fee one time. Do NOT send duplicate copies through the mail or online unless you are specifically requested to do so by our processing staff. We encourage you to view the personal parts of the Transfer Common Application, and in particular the Personal Statement, as opportunities to think about yourself and reflect on what is important to you. Give careful thought to the questions that are asked, but don’t try to write the answers you think we want to hear. Give us answers that tell us about you. Your application must be postmarked by November 1 for Spring 2007 transfer admission, or by March 15 for Fall 2007 transfer admission.

All applicants must complete specific college requirements as noted on the grid on the previous page.

The Transfer Common Application
Submitting the Transfer Common Application and the $70 application fee (or fee waiver—see instructions in this booklet) begins the admissions process and should be done as soon as possible. It is important to submit your Transfer Common Application as early as you can for several reasons: 1. You will avoid delays in the processing of your application. Cornell receives applications from close to 2,500 prospective transfer students each year. Spring transfer applicants will hear back from us in December. Fall transfer applicants should know that it can take us 4–6 weeks to process and review each application from the time of receipt. 2. When we receive your Transfer Common Application and fee, we will e-mail you with the information you need to establish an online Application Status Account on Cornell’s web site. Please note that receiving a PIN via e-mail is your confirmation that we have received your application. Using this secure site, you will be able to track your application materials, update your e-mail address when necessary, and have access to your admissions decision. If you do not receive a PIN within two weeks of submitting the Transfer Common Application to Cornell University, it may be because your e-mail address is incorrect or you are blocking e-mail from us. Go to our web site (admissions. cornell.edu), click on “Check Application Status,” and follow the instructions to obtain your PIN. Use the troubleshooting feedback form if you continue to have problems.

Application Status
If you have any questions about the status of your application, see: admissions.cornell.edu/selfservice.

Important E-Mail Instructions
It is important that you provide us with a legible, current e-mail address that you check frequently. E-mail is our primary tool for communicating with you to request missing application materials, to verify information, to give you special instructions, etc. Please carefully type or print your e-mail address on the application form, being certain that characters are understood (for example, using Ø for zero and noting the difference between a lower case l, the number 1, and the letter I). Please also be sure to include cornell.edu in your address book and/or remove any spam blockers that might prevent our e-mail from reaching you.

2007 Transfer Application Instructions and Application Checklist Continued
Application Fee/Fee Waiver
Cornell’s application fee is $70, and you are required to submit it with your Transfer Common Application. Please remember that if you apply online, you must pay online. If you are submitting a paper application, you must pay by check, draft, or international money order with your full name and home address written on the check so that we can accurately record your fee payment. Your check, draft, or international money order should be drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to Cornell University. You can apply for an application fee waiver by • sending in the College Board Fee Waiver form or • submitting a letter from a transfer advisor or representative of a social service/community agency stating that the fee would cause financial hardship. If you cannot apply for a waiver by one of these methods, please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office (607 255-5241) for further information. If you are submitting your application on paper, your fee waiver request should be sent attached to page AP-1 of the Transfer Common Application (pages AP-1 to AP-4). If you are submitting your application online, check the fee waiver box on the application and mail your fee waiver request to the P.O. box address (see instructions for correct address). Please note that Cornell cannot process your application without the application fee or fee waiver.

Helpful Application Tips
• • • • • • Please be certain to give yourself enough time before the deadline to complete the Transfer Common Application and Cornell Transfer Supplement. Pages can get separated, so include your full name and date of birth on every page. For grouping of multiple pages for mailing, use of paperclips is recommended (do not staple). After completing your application and supplement, make copies for yourself. Set up your online Application Status Account by following the instructions you receive after submitting the Common Application form. Be sure to submit all items on the application checklist below.

Cornell University Transfer Supplement
This required form provides us with essential information about your academic interests. The admissions staff at Cornell carefully reads and evaluates your response to the academic interest essay. The information you provide helps us determine how good a match exists between your intellectual goals and the Cornell college or school to which you are applying. The Cornell Transfer Supplement must be submitted online if your Transfer Common Application was submitted online. If you are submitting your application on paper, please attach your answers to the Cornell-specific essays to the Cornell Transfer Supplement form. You can submit this information with your Transfer Common Application or separately. Be sure to include your name, home address, and U.S. Social Security number or date of birth on all attached work. Please Note: If you are an applicant to the School of Hotel Administration, the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, or to the architecture program in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, a formal interview is required for admission. Applicants to the art department in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning are also encouraged (though not required) to have an interview. We need to receive your Cornell Transfer Supplement early in the admissions cycle so that you can work with Cornell to schedule this required interview at a time that is convenient for both you and the university. (Note: A formal interview is not required or offered in the admissions process for the other undergraduate programs at the university, though visits to campus are always encouraged.)
Since 1963, the Committee on Special Educational Projects (COSEP) has supported underrepresented students with a comprehensive array of programs. If you’re interested in learning more about COSEP, please visit the web site at www.sas.cornell.edu/MEA.
