New Student Information

Your first few weeks will likely be exciting and stressful, and while Cornell is a big place, CALS makes it easy to connect. The CALS Student Services team is here to help you through the process, both now and once you arrive on campus.

We understand the college experience can be both exciting and nerve-racking. You do not have to go through this transition alone. You will have a team at CALS Student Services that, in unison with your academic major, will guide you in course selection, apply for advanced placement credits, understand the academic and personal resources available, and assist you in career development.

Keep chipping away at your to-do list and check your Cornell email and Chatter frequently for important information.


Check out Chatter first as we encourage you to post your question there (chances are others have the same question). If you don’t find an answer please email us cals-studentservices [at] We’ll be sure to get your question answered.
