The State University of New York (SUNY) is, by far, the largest state network of colleges in the United States, with 64 campuses that include universities, medical centers, 4 year colleges, colleges of technology, and 2 year community colleges. SUNY offers any major you can think of! The cost of attendance is approximately $23,000 a year for the 4 year colleges and $19,000 a year for the 2 year colleges. Those amounts include tuition, room and board, books, and traveling/personal expenses.
Apply to the 4 year colleges on Common Application! However, if you also wish to apply to some of the 2 year colleges, they are not on Common App and you must apply at: suny.edu/apply
All students were given a copy of Profiles for the SUNY colleges. It shows the high school grade point average and SAT scores for the current freshman class of each college. Use the profile sheet as a guide so that you know which colleges will be you reach, target, and safety schools.
Check the email that you provided the colleges because they will sometimes email you asking for Supplemental Information. It is important that you complete all of the information they require.
The SUNY schools are on Rolling Admissions (with the exception of Stony Brook & possibly a few others) so it is important that you apply as early as you can to increase your chances of acceptance.
If you are eligible for the Federal Free/Reduced Lunch Program, you might be eligible for SUNY's EOP (Equal Opportunity Program). Apply for that financial aid as early as you can because many other students will be requesting it. EOP also requires that you file your FAFSA with the federal government (see Financial Aid).
You must submit your official SAT scores to each college on your SUNY list by logging into your College Board account and paying for them to send out your scores.
