AnswerWe will send out confirmation of your registration closer to the date of the program.  Please note that interest in these presentations is high, and we may have a wait list.  If you find you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer those on the wait list an opportunity to attend.  You can email us at vet_admissions@cornell.edu or call (607)253-3700 to let us know if your plans have changed.

AnswerTours of our educational and clinical facilities (companion animal hospital) are included when you register above.  Note, these are the only tours offered of the College; individual tours are not available.


AnswerPlease be aware that children 14 years old and under are not allowed on tours, even if space is available, for health and safety reasons.  Additionally, there are many steps to climb; you may see dead or sick animals; you may see blood and animal tissues; you will not be allowed to touch or pet any animals.  Photography is not allowed at any point during the Tour.


AnswerPresentations times vary by location and date.  Prior to the Presentation and Tour, you will receive an email confirming your registration.  This will include details about the time and location of the program.  Please check your email before attending the program in the event we need to let you know about changes in the schedule.


AnswerIf you cannot attend the Presentation and Tour you registered for, please let us know as soon as possible so that your space may be offered to others interested in attending the program.
