- About Plattsburgh
The Plattsburgh International Airport is located just miles away from campus and is our preferred arrival airport for new students. You may also look at flights arriving into larger airports in our region. In those cases, please take note of the need for you to arrange additional ground transportation to Plattsburgh. Our most popular options are listed below in preferred order:
If you are already in New York, take Interstate 87 (the Adirondack Northway) to Exit 37. Turn right at the light and drive east on Route 3 (Cornelia Street) to the "V" intersection with Broad Street. Turn right onto Broad Street. At the third light; you'll be facing the Kehoe Administration Building.
If you are coming from the ferry (from Vermont), follow the signs to Plattsburgh, turning left onto Route 9 (south). Continue on Route 9 (Margaret Street) through downtown Plattsburgh to Broad Street. Turn right onto Broad Street and drive for about one-half mile to the Kehoe Administration Building.
For information regarding what you may legally bring into the U.S., check the U.S. Customs website.
Citizens of certain countries are required to obtain a visa before they travel to Canada (The countries on the list are subject to change. Please follow the Canadian Consulate link for up-to-date information and applying instructions.)
The fee for a Canadian visitor's visa is $75.00 (U.S.) for a single visit and $150.00 (U.S.) for multiple visits. Payment must be made in cash (if you are applying in person), by money order or certified bank check, payable to the "Canadian Consulate General." Canada currently has bilateral agreements with Iran, Portugal, Turkey, and Yugoslavia which state that although citizens of these countries are required to obtain a visa to enter Canada, they are not required to pay the processing fee.
