Education Benefits

At Cornell, learning never stops.

Employee Education

Commit to one course or get your degree. The time commitment is up to you. Cornell helps you grow your education and your career at your own pace.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program offered by the U.S. Department of Education forgives the remaining balance on Direct Loans if you meet certain requirements. As an employer, Cornell meets the requisite of being a “qualifying employer” in that it is a not-for-profit organization, tax exempt under Section 501 (c)(3) of the IRS. 

Visit for information on application guidelines and contact information should you have additional questions about qualifying.

To have your form certified, please contact i2Verify; if you separated from Cornell prior to 2013, contact for certification.


Dependent Education

Whether your children are in diapers or about to enter college for the first time, Cornell offers programs to help you prepare financially including scholarships and college savings programs.
