Resources for Families
Welcome to the Cornell family. We recognize that as your student makes the transition to Cornell, this is also a time of transition within your own family. To help support you in this process, we have compiled this information about academic, residential, community, and other resources and opportunities your student has available at Cornell. During this time, Cornell's Covid-19 website is an essential resource for information about the university's reactivation and other updates. If you still have unanswered questions after reviewing the materials on these pages, do not hesitate to email the New Student Programs staff.
