Campus Financial Resources

SUNY Plattsburgh engages in several revenue generating activities. Revenues from tuition are the college’s primary form of financial support, but many other revenue streams play an important role in enabling Plattsburgh to fulfill its mission in a more meaningful way. The source of the revenue determines where the revenue is required to be deposited and managed.

New York State (NYS) funds The State University of New York (SUNY). Each SUNY Campus is funded by the following funding sources: State Fund, General Income Fund Reimbursable (IFR) Fund, Dormitory Income fund Reimbursable Fund (DIFR), State University Tuition Reimbursable Account (SUTRA), and the Construction Fund. The State Fund is supported by tuition, state support, the college fee, and interest. The General IFR fund is supported by revenue generated from campus programs such as the: athletic fee, technology fee, health center fee, parking fee, add/drop fee, nurse testing fee, design lab, applied music fee, and teacher certification fee. The DIFR fund is supported by the room rental fee and DASNY bonds. The SUTRA fund is supported by summer session tuition and overseas academic program tuition.
