Prospective International Students

Read the online materials carefully before submitting your application. After you apply, we will email you frequently about the status of your application and request any necessary documents.

When emailing the office, please address your question to one person only. Sending the same email to several staff members decreases our ability to respond to your questions in a timely manner.

Accepted International Students

After receiving your acceptance packet, follow the 10 Easy Steps to Enroll in SUNY Plattsburgh. Before you schedule your visa appointment, please read our F-1 visa requirements page. Know what to expect at the visa interview by consulting our visa tips page. Finally, browse through the orientation pages for practical information about banking, cell (mobile) phones, computers, health insurance and much more.

Current International Students

Current students have plenty of questions regarding immigration, employment, health insurance, and other academic/personal matters. We ask you to review the information on the Current Students website before scheduling an appointment with an advisor.

International Alumni

We love hearing news from our graduates.  If you are doing something exciting (graduate school, job, etc.) tell us about it!  Just fill out the online alumni profile and send us a current photo.

Do you want to share your SUNY-Plattsburgh experience with future international students?  We want you to help us spread the news about the excellent education and welcoming environment that we provide for international students.  Please help us take the first step by answering a brief 5-minute survey online.  You can also email us if you are interested in communicating with accepted international students who are trying to decide if SUNY-Plattsburgh is the right place for them.
