The application fee is for processing services; it is non-refundable and independent of an admission decision or a decision to withdraw or decline an offer of acceptance. When you submit an application, you assume responsibility for prompt payment of all fees due. Your application will not be processed until full payment or authorized fee waiver is received.
Students facing significant financial hardship may request their application fees be waived by having their school or transfer counselor complete and submit a Fee Waiver Form.
The State University waives the $50 application fee for up to four college choices for transfer students graduating with an A.A. or A.S. degree from a SUNY or CUNY two-year college, who apply directly to State University four-year colleges for baccalaureate programs. If you are a transfer student seeking the fee waiver, you must answer "yes" to the first question in the "Transfer History" section of the "Academic History" tab.
Students submitting an application for EOP consideration may qualify for an application fee waiver for their first four (4) campus choices. If a student does not meet both the academic and economic guidelines or the campus to which the student is applying does not operate an Educational Opportunity Program the student will be billed for the fee.
If you are transferring to the last years of a cooperative program, such as a 2+3 program in engineering, you may also have your fee waived.
Students who are eligible for a fee waiver should select "Fee Waiver" as their payment method. If you request a waiver and are found ineligible you will be required to submit payment before your application will be processed.
