To enroll, please visit the Student Health Plan (SHP) section of the To-do list.

The program charge does not cover the $100 non-refundable application fee, cost of books, supplies, or transportation to or from the program, which is at the student’s discretion.

Payment

Please submit payment for the full program charge through the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions payment portal for international students at sce.flywire.com. (When setting up your Flywire account, use the same e-mail that you used for your CCUSP application.)

Flywire allows you to pay securely from any bank, generally in your home currency. Payment methods for CCUSP through Flywire include domestic bank transfers, debit/credit card payments in your home currency, and electronic payments (including UPOP and Allipay.com).

When you make a payment through Flywire you can

  • Track your payment from start to finish
  • Save on bank fees and exchange rates
  • Contact their multilingual customer support team with any questions, day or night.

For more information, visit the Flywire help page.

NOTE: Students are not officially enrolled in CCUSP until the full payment is posted to their account.

Payment deadline

It is critical that we receive your payment on time so you do not lose your place in your program.

Full payment is due within five business days from the date of your acceptance letter, however, if you are admitted within a week before or at the application deadline, full payment is due the day of your acceptance.

Students are NOT enrolled in their classes or assigned housing until the total program charge is paid in full. You may lose your place in the program if you do not meet your payment deadline.

You must meet this deadline so that we and the many Cornell offices we work with have adequate time to:

  • reserve your place in your accepted classes,
  • assign you a room in one of our residence halls,
  • plan your summer dining options,
  • issue you an I-20, and
  • attend to many other important details, all of which must be in place in order for us to meet the needs of all of our students.
