How do I know if I am eligible to apply for New York State (NYS) residency for tuition purposes at Cornell?
There are two situations in which students may be eligible for NYS residency for tuition purposes at Cornell. Undergraduate students at Cornell are considered to be dependents of their parents. If the parents move to NYS and establish a domicile, the student submits an application with the parent's information and supporting documentation.
The second situation is if the student can prove financial independence from their parents and can also prove NYS residency. The student submits the application and documentation that supports both financial independence and NYS residency.
