1. SUNY’s Board of Trustees is maintaining 2019-20 tuition rates for fall 2020. 

2. SUNY clarified its policy for Non-Resident Online Tuition eligibility for all SUNY institutions to specify that this rate applies only to academic programs that are “exclusively online.”

3. Overall, students will see a 2.03% increase in the Comprehensive Fee, including the addition of a new Career Services fee. Fees for a few select student services were increased.

  • The Athletics Fee will be reduced by $53.00 to $212.75 for the fall 2020 semester.  This is due in part to the Mid-American Conference (MAC) decision to pause the fall sports season as a result of COVID-19.
