Family Weekend provides a unique opportunity for you to visit campus, meet Cornell staff and other Cornell families, and participate in numerous events and activities. The weekend activities offer flexibility for you to create your own schedule; you select those events you wish to participate in, either on your own or with your student.
Cornell Family Weekend is a fee-based program that is completely self-supporting; the cost is not included in tuition. Most, but not all of the weekend’s activities are included in your registration fee. A small number of activities require an additional ticket purchase for every member of your family, including your Cornell student.
No registration fee for current Cornell students or children under 12. Fees may be required for other ticketed events (i.e., music concerts, athletics, etc.)
Early Bird Registration (purchased by 11:59 pm, October 24, 2021) - $25.00 per person*
Regular Registration (purchased after 11:59 pm, October 24, 2021) - $35.00 per person*
* Includes all applicable service charges for registration fees only - additional event tickets may add their own service charges.
