Information for Graduate StudentsOverview
Cornell University has announced plans for the fall semester, which includes a hybrid approach to a residential semester (with in-person, online and hybrid teaching modalities), robust virus testing, and modifications to the academic calendar that will allow students to begin classes on Sept. 2 and return home for Thanksgiving and finish the semester remotely. These plans apply to the Ithaca campus and Cornell Agritech in Geneva; detailed information about the fall semester will be released in the weeks ahead.
The Graduate School is focused on seeing that every student completes their Cornell degree and has provided regular updates, FAQs and other resources and information for the graduate and professional student community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have not been approved to return to campus by the department and college in which your research or scholarly activity occurs and informed of this approval by your faculty advisor or supervisor, you should not come to campus.
