Cornell undergrad tuition to rise 3.75 percent, sticker price now $52,612

The Cornell Board of Trustees voted to increase the price of undergraduate tuition, housing contracts, meal plans and health fees for the 2017-2018 fiscal year, the University announced Monday.

The sticker price for undergraduate students enrolling in one of the endowed schools and for out-of-state students enrolling in a contract college will rise by $1,900 next year, from $50,712 to $52,612. New York State residents enrolled in one of the contract colleges will pay $1,274 more next year in tuition, totaling $35,242.

Robert Harrison ’76, chair of the Board of Trustees, told The Sun that Cornell is more affordable now, in absolute terms and in inflation-adjusted dollars, than it was 20 years ago for students who receive financial aid.
