The first time you use applySUNY, you will be required to create an account. You must supply a valid email address and password so that you can return to work on your application over several sessions.

  4.  Complete Your Application.

You will be presented with several pages of questions to complete. Complete the questions on each page.

  5.  Pay Your Application Fee.

When you have completed your application and are ready to submit it, you can pay your application fees via a credit card, debit card, or you can mail a check or money order to the Application Services Center. There is a non-refundable application fee of $50 per campus selection.
