Betsy Kane

Director of Graduate Admissions

Welcome to the Office of Graduate Admissions, where we are eager to help you pursue graduate study at SUNY Plattsburgh.  There are many factors to consider when applying to and selecting a graduate school, and it is my hope that we can help simplify this sometimes overwhelming process.  Our website can provide answers to many of your questions, but please do not hesitate to call or email us if we can assist you in any way throughout the application process.  If you have not already been to campus, I invite you to stop by and see us, and to explore the beautiful surrounding region of Lake Champlain, Burlington, Vermont, and the Adirondack mountains, while you are here.  We look forward to working with you.

Tonya Deese

Graduate Assistant for Graduate Admissions

Welcome!  After transferring to SUNY Plattsburgh as an undergraduate, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Individualized General Studies Education in December 2013.  Since then, I have chosen to continue my education here at SUNY Plattsburgh, entering the master’s program in Student Affairs Counseling in Fall 2014.  Over the last few years, I have grown to know and love the Adirondack region.  My dog Otis (to the left) and I really enjoy the scenic views and hiking in the local area.  Please feel free to stop by or call with any questions, concerns, or to simply say hello!
