• For this application cycle, due to Covid 19, SUNY has made the submission of SAT scores optional.  However, you should check on each college's website or call their office of admissions to be sure!
    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 $25,000 a year for the 4 year colleges and $20,000 a year for the 2 year colleges. Those amounts include tuition, room and board, books, and traveling/personal expenses. If you are eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship (see Scholarship tab) you will not be charged $7,000 for tuition per year.
    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
    The Profiles for the SUNY colleges are in the "How to Apply to College booklet."  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 your reach, target, and safety schools.
    Check your email on a regular basis because colleges will sometimes email you asking for Supplemental Information. It is important that you complete all of the information they require.
    Most of the SUNY schools are on Rolling Admissions (however some do have fixed deadlines) 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 (apply at: https://www.myschoolapps.com), 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 tab).
    If you are submitting your official SAT scores to each college on your SUNY list, log into your College Board account and pay for them to send out your scores.
