Career Services Fee

This is a mandatory fee for matriculated undergraduate and graduate students on the Plattsburgh campus. It supports enhanced career-related services for students as they prepare for life after attaining their degrees from SUNY Plattsburgh.

 Guidelines

  • Applies to both undergraduate and graduate students
  • Only applicable to main campus students - not branch campus students at Queensbury. However, this policy will be reviewed after one year once the new programs and services are underway
  • Applies only to matriculated students
  • Is charged regardless of course mix such as campus courses, online courses, or both
  • $1 per credit hour but is capped at $10 per semester
  • Is charged only during fall and spring semesters

This fee allows the Career Development Center staff to invest in new technologies (including web-based applications) and it includes:

  • Students who are away from campus (examples include study abroad, co-op, interships, student teaching, independent courses, and online courses)
  • Students enrolled in three credit hours or less or who commute more than 35 miles each way to campus
  • Students whose only classes begin after 4:00 p.m.

Exceptions

  • Full-time employees of SUNY Plattsburgh or the Research Foundation (excluding graduate assistants and dorm assistants)
  • High school students

Waivers

Waivers or exemptions from the Career Services fee must be requested in writing to the Director of the Career Development Center or his/her designee.
