Each year, dozens of Cornell staff members graduate with degrees from Cornell and other colleges with the help of the Employee Degree Program and the Tuition Aid program offered by the University.

The Division of Human Resources and the Employee Assembly host an annualStaff Graduate Reception for employees who receive degrees through one of our educational programs. This event promotes the University's pride in those employees who achieve their educational goals while also maintaining their job responsibilities. If you will be graduating, please notify HR Services & Transitions Center at (607) 255-3936 or so that you can be included in this celebration.
