Paying Your Bill

The Office of the Bursar offers several payment options:

*Cash payments are not accepted.


Students and other users/payers may pay the Bursar bill online via their Cashnet account. Payers not enrolled in Cashnet may pay the bursar bill electronically via Cashnet's Payment Without Bill Presentment.

You will need your student's seven-digit student ID number.

By Mail

We strongly encourage paying your bill on line via Cashnet, however, if you wish to pay by mail, please send your check or money order to the Office of the Bursar, 260 Day Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-2801.

Payments should be made payable to Cornell University, include the student's seven-digit student ID, and indicate how much of your payment should be applied to each account (the Bursar and/or CornellCard).

Outside scholarship checks should be mailed to the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment, Scholarship Division, P.O. Box 752, Ithaca, NY 14851. For more information, see the Financial Aid website.

To avoid a finance charge of 1.25% per month on the unpaid balance, Bursar and CornellCard amounts must be received by the billing due date. Additionally, if a due balance is not resolved, it may result in a financial hold being placed on the student account, limiting future enrollment and diploma release.
