What are the Enrollment Periods at Cornell Univeristy?

Cornell has two enrollment periods: Pre-Enrollment and Regular Enrollment. Pre-Enrollment will be your first opportunity to enroll in Fall classes. Pre-Enrollment allows our campus to review course demand for a variety of campus support needs. Regular Enrollment will be your second opportunity to enroll in classes before the start of the semester.

April Pre-Enrollment

Fall 2023 Pre-Enrollment for Continuing Students will begin on April 26th at 7:30am through April 28th at 11:59pm (ET).

August Regular Enrollment

Fall 2023 Regular Enrollment for all students (continuing and incoming) will begin in August (TBA!)

The published Fall 2023 Class Roster  lists all of our officially offered courses at Cornell Tech.

  • When reviewing the class roster, filter by Location for “Cornell Tech” to review your eligible Cornell Tech class offerings.
    • Please be mindful that eligible PhD Classes (either hosted at CT or hosted from Ithaca), will have a specific enrollment section for CT PhD students (this is often labeled as LEC 030, 031, SEM 130, 131, and so on).
    • CT PhD Students cannot enroll in the Ithaca section of a course offering (often labeled as LEC 001, 002, and so on) as that section is just for Ithaca  student enrollment. Thus, it is important that you search for available courses using the class roster  “Location for “Cornell Tech” filter to avoid confusion as it filters out the Ithaca sections!
  • Limited CT PhD Courses are available to enroll in during Pre-Enrollment. Streamed classes from Ithaca have not been arranged yet. Additional PhD Classes will be set up for Regular Enrollment in August.
  • A limited amount of seats across all Master’s Technical courses will be open during Pre-Enrollment.  Waitlists will not be open during Pre-Enrollment. Additional seats and waitlists will be open for Regular Enrollment in August.
  • Please make sure to review the class roster notes of the course as it will indicate if you are eligible to enroll in the class based on your academic program.
  • Class meeting patterns, times, grading basis, prerequisites, etc. are official and published. Classroom locations are TBD but will be scheduled over the summer.

Further updates will be announced and updated on this page as we approach the Fall semester.
