Cornell’s online classes are regular, credit-bearing Cornell courses. The grades and credits earned through these courses are recorded on an official Cornell transcript. As such, these classes — and all credit-bearing offerings — are subject to the Cornell tuition rate set by the university's Board of Trustees.

Tuition is $1,575 per credit for fall 2020 through summer 2021.

Example: A three-credit course at $1,575 per credit = $4,725

Cornell tuition does not include textbooks for the class. You may be required to purchase textbooks.

Payment deadlines for online courses

Tuition and fees are due within two days of the date of enrollment. After we receive your payment, we'll process your online enrollment form. You are not officially registered until you have submitted full payment.

Summer online students: If you're participating in more than one session, payment must be submitted for all sessions according to the applicable dates for the first session in which you are enrolling.
