SUNY Plattsburgh Admissions Way Up, Freshmen Applications Closed
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Great news from the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh
-- the number of freshmen who have chosen to enroll in the fall is up substantially
and has exceeded the College's goals.
"Current freshman deposits are strong at 1,078. This is great news for SUNY Plattsburgh," said Rich Higgins, director of admissions and associate vice president of enrollment management.
Total deposits for incoming freshmen are up by nearly 20 percent over last year and have surpassed the goal of 925. The application pool is so strong that the College has now closed admission for new freshmen.
"Due to the high demand, we are starting to turn away freshman applications as well as those deposits that are late -- beyond announced deadlines," said Higgins.
"The fall is looking great as far as our incoming freshman class," said President John Ettling. "The Admissions Office should be proud of the hard work they've done during the past year bringing in this strong class of freshmen. It has been a College-wide effort, and everyone should feel good about what we have accomplished in terms of our incoming freshmen class."
The College will continue to accept students who want to transfer from other institutions as well as those students who once attended Plattsburgh and wish to return to complete their studies.
