SUNY Plattsburgh Tuition

View total tuition and fees cost summary.


These rates are based on a resolution proposed by the Chancellor of The State University of New York and approved by the SUNY Board of Trustees on June 21, 2017. Final adoption of these rates will occur after a 45-day public comment period in the New York State Register and the adoption by the Board of Trustees of a resolution authorizing final rulemaking in late September 2017.

Full-time for tuition purposes is 12 or more credit hours per semester.

Under new federal and state regulations, certain veterans and their dependents are eligible for in-state tuition at public colleges. If you are a veteran, or dependent of a veteran, and you are being charged an out-of-state tuition rate, you may be eligible for the in-state rate. If you believe you qualify, please submit a Certificate of Eligibility or a Form DD214 to Larry Allen, Director of Student Conduct and Student Veteran Support.
