Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students are subject to the same requirements as non-transfer students. The only difference is that some of the classes they have taken at their previous institutions may count towards their Cornell transcripts.  

IMPORTANT: Upon arriving at Cornell, transfer students should immediately set up a meeting with the Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss which classes taken at their previous institutions can count toward their Economics Major at Cornell. Students should bring copies of your transcripts and course syllabi to this meeting. To set up a meeting, email

For questions and information relating to satisfying general Arts College requirements, we suggest that transfer students also meet with an Arts College advisor.
