Program Interview Dates

Tuition Deposit

SUNY Plattsburgh requires a $250 tuition deposit for all graduate programs.  Once you become an admitted student, the tuition deposit will hold your seat in the program and will be applied toward your tuition for the semester in which you are matriculating.  Refunds for tuition deposits may be requested from the Director of Graduate Admissions, but refunds are not guaranteed if the request is made more than 30 days after the deposit was paid or if the semester has begun.

Important Notes

Applications received after the deadline may be considered on a space-available basis for some programs.

All graduate candidates are responsible for making certain that their applications are complete. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Interviews are required or may be required for Counselor Education (Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Student Affairs Counseling), Educational Leadership (SBL and SDL Programs), Expeditionary Studies, School Psychology, Speech-Language Pathology, Adolescence Education, Childhood Education, Teaching and Learning, and Literacy Education. Candidates will be contacted by the program department about interview dates and times.
