Saving at Cornell

You may find yourself in a position to save money while you are a student. If you would like to be in a position to save, but don’t have money left over after paying for  your essential educational expenses, you’ll want to revisit your budget plan and possibly talk with financial aid staff to help you revise your plan. Whether your savings is $50 or $2,000, you should congratulate yourself that you are able to set aside money.

We have created a Financial Planner form to help you plan for your expenses. If you regularly have money left, check out our section on saving money.
