Home state advantage

When it comes to college, being a resident of New York state can help you save.

After registering for classes, you will receive a tuition bill from the Student Accounts/ Bursar's Office.

Payment due dates are scheduled approximately four weeks before the start of the first day of classes for the Fall semester and two weeks before the start of classes for the Spring semester.  

1. Submit a Certificate of Residence if you are a New York state resident (obtained no earlier than 60 days before the start of classes) to Student Accounts. This form is required to qualify for the New York state tuition rate.  

2. If using financial aid, check your financial aid status by logging into Self-Service Banner, where you can review your bill to determine the amount of tuition you owe.   

3. Make a payment, set up a payment plan or send a check or money order payable to SUNY Adirondack to the Student Accounts Office.

Estimate your costs

What is price of attendance?

To determine how much aid a student is eligible to receive, a cost of attendance is established. This amount factors in expenses such as tuition, fees, room and board (includes on campus, off campus and living with parents/family), transportation, books and supplies, and personal needs.

Students are awarded aid — scholarships, grants and loans — to assist in covering these charges. A student's aid cannot exceed the student's cost of attendance. 

Students can determine an estimated cost to attend SUNY Adirondack using the SUNY Net Price Calculator (NPC). The NPC presents an estimated calculation of what a new student or transfer student can expect to pay to attend SUNY Adirondack.

NOTE: While the NPC is a valuable tool, families should realize these are only estimated values and students will receive individual awards from the SUNY Adirondack Financial Aid Office. Please keep in mind that a student's out-of-pocket expenses may be less than estimated from NPC.

 

How do I pay for college?

The Student Accounts Office, sometimes called the Bursar's Office, is responsible for student billing and revenue collection.

Student Accounts oversees monthly payment plans, deferred tuition payments, refunds and collection of past-due student accounts.
