Transfer Applicants

The Brooks School welcomes transfers from two- and four-year colleges, and from other Cornell undergraduate colleges/schools.

If you have graduated from high school and received 12 or more university credits at a different institution since graduation, please review our external transfer page.

If you are a current Cornell student interested in transferring to Brooks, please review our internal transfer page.



Application Expectations

In addition to strong academic performance, to be a successful Brooks applicant, you will need to show that you have engaged in meaningful extracurricular activities and volunteer work that reflects your values and interests. We seek quality participation in these activities, not just quantity of experiences.  You should demonstrate that you have reflected on your personal values and academic goals, and have considered how the Cornell Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy will align with both.  Using your experiences as a foundation, clearly articulate why you are drawn to studying public policy and your chosen major at the Brooks School.
