  • Question: Hey guys how are you all? I'm a high school senior and I haven't taken my SAT as of yet (I'm scheduled for November) could I still apply? Moreover, what are the deadlines for applications for the Fall of 2015 or even Spring 2016? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Yes, you can absolutely still apply!  We are on rolling admission, but prefer that students send in their application by December 1st for prime consideration.  

    We do consider applications after that point, but we get more competitive as we fill our slots for the upcoming year.  Submitting your application and all supporting documentation around the December 1 date ensures that you are giving yourself the best possible chance of admission.

Its fall everyone! That means Travel! Travel! Travel! Be sure to take a look at SUNY Plattsburgh Admissions travel schedule to see if we will be at a college fair near you. If so, don’t be nervous! Come right on by and we will take the time to answer any questions you have. What should you ask? Here are some topics that can be beneficial to you when trying to decide on a college.

  1. Students & Social Life: Moving from high school to college may be a big step, but it doesn’t have to be a scary one. Don’t be afraid to ask us any questions you may have about social life on campus! What are the dorms like? Is there much to do on campus? Are there clubs to get involved with? How is school spirit? How are the college’s sports teams? How’s the weather?
  2. Food & Meal Plans: Don’t forget to ask about food! You will be eating it for a while, so you may want to make sure you enjoy it. It may not be what mom used to make, but I’m sure you can find a suitable substitute.
  3. Campus Facilities: What can the campus offer me? Is there a Gym in close proximity to the dorm buildings? How far away will classes be? Is the computer lab up to date? You will be using these facilities while living on campus. Make sure they are what you had in mind.
  4. Academic Programs: Of course, you must go to a college that will benefit you and your studies. How do their programs look? Do any interest you? Or do you already know the program you want but can’t choose the best program? This is an important step in the college selection process. But don’t make this the only step in the process. The campus you choose is your home nine months out of the year. Make sure it’s what you had in mind.
  5. Off Campus: Lastly, ask about the community life. Your social life doesn’t exist only on campus. Is there shopping close by? Are there good places to eat? What is there to do off campus? Much like with academic programs, do not make this the core of your search process. Once you find a community with “potential” you can go out and discover your own fun things to do off campus!
