Student health fee: To ensure that they have access to campus health services, visiting students enrolled in on-campus summer classes will be assessed the $100 summer Student Health Fee, unless they enroll in Cornell’s Student Health Plan (SHP). See the Health and safety page for details.

Course fee: A nonrefundable fee charged for certain courses is noted in the course description.

Registration fee: The Summer Session registration fee for 2016 is $100. We will waive this fee if you enroll by May 6. Students enrolling after May 6 will be charged this $100 nonrefundable one-time registration fee.

Further, an additional $100 per-week late-registration fee will be charged if you enroll and register after the late-registration period begins for the applicable session.
