International Student Scholarships
SUNY Plattsburgh offers partial scholarships to 100% of accepted international students. We do not offer full scholarships — our award packages cover between 20 – 40% of your total cost of attendance.
We award scholarships based on your academic merit (high school average or transfer GPA) and student type (first-year or transfer). We determine scholarship amounts after conducting a holistic review of your grades, academic and non-academic achievement, activities and exam scores (if available). You will be notified of your scholarship awards when you receive your admission decision.
Our scholarship packages are renewable each year you attend.
