Welcome Information for Accepted Graduate Students
Congratulations! If you have received notification 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. Be sure to read your acceptance letter carefully as some programs require a deposit to be made by April 15. The tuition deposit will hold your seat in the program and will be applied toward your tuition bill for your first semester. You will also be asked to acknowledge any conditions of your acceptance, such as the need to complete a prerequisite course or exam before the start of classes, or the way that graduate transfer credits will be applied toward your degree.
Graduate Student Orientation
Graduate Student Orientation is offered once a year in August, for students entering in the fall semester. Students who recently started in any other semester are welcome to attend as well. 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 some of the information that you will need to get you started here at SUNY Plattsburgh's Main or Branch Campuses. Please contact us with any questions you may have as you are preparing to get started with your graduate coursework.
All students enrolling in 6 or more credit hours must complete a health form before the start of classes, which may include a physical exam and record of immunizations. You should have received information in your acceptance packet about this, but please visit the Student Health Center web page if you need a copy of the form. If you have previously submitted these records to SUNY Plattsburgh within the past 7 years, you will not be required to supply them again.
College Calendar, and College Catalog
After you have paid your $250 deposit and acknowledged any conditions of your acceptance, you will be eligible to register for classes. It is in your best interest to return the form and deposit to the Graduate Admissions Office as soon as possible. You will want to register and get a seat in each of your classes before non-matriculated students are allowed to register. If you are uncertain about which classes to register for, please consult your advisor. Your advisor's name is listed in your acceptance packet.
Master Schedules may be accessed online at Banner Web. If you have any questions or encounter difficulty with the registration process, contact the Registrar's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (518) 564-2100 or toll-free at (800) 570-1634.
Graduate students may be eligible for various New York State and Federal financial aid programs. You may visit the Financial Aid website for information concerning eligibility. Students may also apply for Graduate Assistantships, the Diversity Fellowship, and private loans.
