Tuition Deposit

Starting in the Spring of 2011, SUNY Plattsburgh is requiring a $250 tuition deposit for all graduate programs.  You will not be requested to pay the tuition deposit until you have been accepted into a graduate program.  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. Programs that require an interview will usually not accept late applications.

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 (Mental Health Counseling, School Counselor, 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.
