We engage in several revenue-generating activities.

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. There are four entities that have the authority to manage revenue and expenditures on behalf of the college for specific purposes;

  • College
  • Plattsburgh College Foundation
  • SUNY Research Foundation
  • College Auxiliary Services

Each funding source has its own set of accounting and fiscal controls. Following is a brief description of the primary aspects of each funding source. The fiscal year for each funding source is the same, July 1 through June 30.

  • State Fund

    Fund into which tuition, state support, interest, and the college fee are deposited for spending as part of Financial Plan submitted to SUNY. Considered the college’s core operating budget. The state legislature through the state budgetary process appropriates state tax support funds annually. All activity is monitored by the state comptroller’s office.
