Merit-based scholarships will be offered to approximately 10-15% of students offered admission for the Fall of 2017. This will include applicants for both Early and Regular Decision. Selection criteria and amounts are TBD.


Non-residents of New York State will be charged the out-of-state tuition rate. Basic eligibility for in-state tuition is determined by the student's domicile which must have been in New York State for a period of at least one year immediately preceding the time of registration. Your domicile is the fixed and permanent home to which you intend to return whenever absent. The sole purpose of attending college does not meet the domicile requirement. To determine if you are eligible for in-state tuition, please review the SUNY Guide to Resident Tuition Policy

If you have been charged out-of-state tuition and have reason to believe you are eligible for a change in resident status, you must submit the Application for New York State Residency Status to the Office of Financial Aid, Erwin 104, 1 College Circle, Geneseo, NY 14454 or
