What does Student & Academic Affairs do?

The Student & Academic Affairs team provides support to enrolled students from orientation to graduation. We answer questions about day-to-day student life at Cornell Tech and advise students on graduation requirements, registration, disability services, health resources, and international student services. Additionally, the Office of Student & Academic Affairs works closely with Cornell Tech student organizations and plans large student events including new student orientation, PhD visit days, and the Cornell Tech recognition ceremony. Student & Academic Affairs is here to help you make the most of your academic and personal experience and support you along the way!
