Per Cornell University policy, all EYH participants and visitors (including students, parents, teachers, and accompanying adults, regardless of age) should stay home if they are ill, and are strongly encouraged to take an antigen test in advance of visiting campus or attending EYH.

The university does not check vaccination status for campus visitors; however, visitors are encouraged to have received a primary COVID-19 vaccine series and be up to date on eligible boosters

EYH 2023 Registration Is Not Open

The registration window for the 2023 Cornell EYH conference is currently not open. If you have any questions, please contact us at cornelleyhreg@gmail.com.

Conference Fees

There is no fee to enter the registration lottery. If you are selected to attend EYH, the registration fee is $25 per student and is non-refundable. With this payment, the student will receive:

We encourage each student to bring an accompanying adult to the conference. There is no additional fee for the participation of an accompanying adult. Any student who does not have an accompanying adult will be assigned a Cornell Buddy for the day. However, we want to open EYH to as many students as possible, and the availability of Cornell Buddies is a limiting factor on the size of the conference.

Additional adults beyond the accompanying adult can register for $10. Additional T-shirts can be purchased for $10.

Group Leader Responsibilities

Please click here for INFORMATION FOR GROUP LEADERS for EYH 2023.

If your group is selected for participation in EYH, you will be our contact person for all registration logistics. You will pass on information about the conference to your group members. You will ensure that each student completes their online registration on time. You will submit a single payment to EYH to cover the registration fees for all group members. On the morning of the conference, you will sign your group in at the EYH registration table, and will coordinate the distribution of nametags and folders to your group members. For safety purposes, if you are unable to serve as group leader on the day of the conference please let us know ASAP who the replacement group leader will be. You can be the group leader for only one group.
