Welcome Information for Accepted Graduate Students

Congratulations! If you have received an acceptance packet from the Graduate Admissions Office, you have been formally accepted into a graduate program at SUNY Plattsburgh.

To accept our offer of admission, you must return a $250 tuition deposit by the date specified in your acceptance packet. The tuition deposit will hold your seat in the program and will be applied toward your tuition bill for your first semester. 

Graduate Student Orientation

Graduate Student Orientation is offered once annually for students entering in the fall semester.  For students who cannot attend, or who are new to the colleges in another semester, we have created an online Graduate Student Orientation Handbook with most of the information that you will need to get you started here at SUNY Plattsburgh's Main and Branch Campuses.  Please contact us with any questions you may have as you are preparing to get started with your graduate coursework.

It is in your best interest to return the form and deposit to the Graduate Admissions Office as soon as possible.
