Enrollment and registration

Part-time students

Are you interested in furthering your career, continuing your education, or simply having fun learning something new? Even if you are not currently enrolled in a Cornell degree program, you may still take courses during the winter (as well as during the fall and spring semesters and Summer Session) as a part-time student.

Part-time students earn credit for all courses taken and their grades are recorded on an official university transcript.

Questions about applying credit earned through part-time study toward Cornell degrees or about admission to Cornell must be directed to the appropriate college. The transfer of credit to another institution is subject to the approval of that institution.
