A change of scenery brings new opportunities to flourish and succeed.

Make the most of them at SUNY Plattsburgh.

As one of U.S. News and World Report’s “America's Best Colleges" of 2014, SUNY Plattsburgh is deeply committed to academic excellence. SUNY Plattsburgh's main campus offers more than 60 high-quality, affordable degree programs in a beautiful upstate New York setting. And our branch campus in Queensbury offers students in the greater Glens Falls/Saratoga region the convenience of a high-quality education in their own back yard.

Professors Who Have Time for You

At SUNY Plattsburgh, you’ll learn from accomplished, accessible faculty who will take the time to help you. And you’ll have the chance to complement your studies – from internships to hands-on learning experiences in the community. If you really want to get out of the classroom, there are a variety of opportunities to study abroad as well.

Transferring to a new college can indeed be a hassle, but SUNY Plattsburgh makes it easy. We have a friendly credit-transfer policy , and we’ll pre-register you into your major courses before orientation.

A Fun, Vibrant Campus

There’s no shortage of activities on our main campus. Choose from one of our many organizations, enjoy a play or a concert, or catch a Cardinals game. Off campus, you can visit restaurants, shopping centers and the region’s biggest movie theater.

You’ll find even more excitement just an hour away, whether it’s the Olympic village in Lake Placid, NY, the unique atmosphere of Burlington, VT, or the art and culture of Montreal.

New opportunities await you at SUNY Plattsburgh. Visit the campus and see for yourself why so many students transfer here each year.
