About Smart Track

SUNY Smart Track is...

A world-class education combined with reasonable tuition is the perfect formula for student success. We work hard to keep the cost of a SUNY education lower than the national average and degree attainment affordable. The cost of attending SUNY should be clear and understandable to our students and their families. That is why we created SUNY Smart Track®, the nation’s most aggressive and comprehensive effort to assure financial aid transparency. Smart Track is dedicated to you, with a commitment to transparency and helping you and your family to make the best decision in college financing.

All 64 campuses use a standard SUNY Financial Aid Plan that clearly outlines the cost of attendance and financial aid offerings, and includes campus-specific graduation, median borrowing, and loan default rates. SUNY’s rational tuition policy and its easy-to-use financial literacy tools allow prospective students and their families to calculate college costs and plan accordingly.

With early outreach and engagement for all SUNY students, help is available every step of the way; from the moment you apply to one of our 64 campuses and continuing beyond graduation.

It’s just another reason why SUNY is a smart investment and a sound economical decision.
