Financial Responsibility Agreement

Financial institutions, including the financial departments of colleges and universities, are required by federal laws to be transparent with their policies/procedures and requirements. Our goal is to help students to understand the cost of their education and their financial responsibilities, as well as Cornell’s financial policies and expectations for payment.

For this reason, all Cornell students are required to accept the Financial Responsibility Agreement annually. Signing this agreement is your acknowledgment of your financial obligations related to enrolling in classes, and your understanding of the potential consequences that may result if you fail to meet your obligations.

  Sign your Financial Responsibility Agreement

If you do not sign your agreement, your access to university services will be limited, you will not be able to enroll, and you will be subject to administrative withdrawal.
