Recognizing the serious challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic for student learning, faculty teaching, and academic performance assessment, the Cornell University Graduate School asserts the following principles:
Admission to the Ph.D. program in the Graduate Field of Communication at Cornell University is highly competitive. The Graduate Admissions Committee considers several factors for admission to the graduate program, and all applicants must meet the general admission requirements of the Cornell University Graduate School. Once admitted, all students are fully funded by the Department for five years through assistantships and/or fellowships, provided suitable progress is being made toward completing the degree.
Application to the program is via the Graduate School's online application.
The application for Fall 2021 will be live in August 2020.
Please note Communication applications are accepted only for the Fall term. The application deadline is December 1, 2020, by which all application materials must be submitted (including GRE and TOEFL/IELTS scores). Letters of recommendation are due by December 15, 2020. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Please visit the Graduate School's website for information about the application fee and waiver process.
(Please upload all requested materials into the application; hard copies of your materials will not be accepted)
We are currently updating admissions guidelines for the upcoming admissions cycle. Please check back later for an update. Thanks!
