Tuition

The SUNY Board of Trustees has not raised tuition costs for the Spring 2021 semester. Therefore, you will see the same rate as Fall 2020.

 

Room and Board

There is no reduction in Spring 2021 room and board fees. Although the academic calendar was adjusted to allow for a later start date, with the cancellation of Spring Break and a later closing date, we are back to the normal number of housing days. (Fall 2020 room and board rates were reduced due to fewer housing days.)

We ask for your patience as we continue to receive updates about room and board charges.  Any changes to your account after this billing notice, will be reflected on your account in real time and by the billing due date.

 

Mandatory Fees

  • The Intercollegiate Athletics Fee will be $317.50 for the Spring 2021 semester. The fee has returned to its approved rate because the University is planning for winter and spring athletic seasons. (Athletics were suspended for the Fall 2020 semester.) Competitions will be streamed online for students to watch.

  • The Parking and Transportation Fee has been reduced by 25% for the Spring 2021 semester but will continue to ensure that students who need these services receive them without interruption or reduction. This fee is part of the Comprehensive Service Fee which is reduced by $40.50 for an overall cost of $627 for Spring 2021 ($712.50 in Fall 2020).
