Welcome to the Office of Admissions!

The college search can feel overwhelming, but we're here to help. Have a question about our application process, campus, or academic programs? We're just a call, email, or visit away. Our Admissions and Financial Aid Advisors look forward to sharing their enthusiasm for Tompkins Cortland with you and helping you find the program and plan for success that fits best. No two of our students are the same so we pride ourselves on three basic things: Accessibility, Affordability, and Flexibility.
