Admissions Decisions

Admissions decisions are typically made after the first of the year. Students are notified by email that their decision letter is available to them electronically. They are given a Pin Number that they can enter on their admissions tracking page. The decision letter will then be available.

Key info for:

Admitted Students

  • You will receive a ‘Conditions' form that indicates:
    • any lacking prerequisite courses
    • tuition for the current year
    • information on how to apply for financial aid
    • other lacking documents and deadlines
  • April 15 is the deadline to inform Cornell DVM of your decision. Admissions will have sent an enrollment deposit card to mail in with a non-refundable deposit of $500. The deposit will be placed on the student's first bursar bill against tuition charges.
  • Make sure to attend one of the Information Sessions held during February and March. Sessions provide invaluable information from faculty and students, and an opportunity to see the College in detail.

Alternate Offers (waitlist)

  • You will receive a ‘Conditions' form that indicates:
    • any lacking prerequisite courses
    • tuition for the current year
    • information on how to apply for financial aid
    • other lacking documents and deadlines
  • Typically, alternates are notified one week after the April 15 deadline.
  • We encourage students who would like to have some financial aid information available to complete all the forms below by February 1st.

Denied Applicants

  • Applying for admission to the Cornell DVM program is extremely competitive. Students may have to apply a couple of times before gaining an offer of admission.
  • We encourage students who are denied to contact the Director of Admissions to set up an in-person or phone post-applicant counseling appointment. During this conversation you will be given feedback on how to strengthen a future application.
