Processing Time for Applications

  • E-mail notification is sent when the application is received.
  • Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received.
  • Incomplete applications will delay processing time.
  • Every effort is made to review applications as quickly as possible. Processing time may be longer at high-volume times such as at the beginning of semesters and near deadlines. Once reviewed, a determination letter or an e-mail requesting additional documentation is sent.
  • Students billed at the out-of-state rate remain responsible for that rate until they have demonstrated they are eligible for the in-state rate through the residency application process.
  • If you require an expedited response, contact (518) 442-3202, or reply to the e-mail receipt notice.
