SUNY Plattsburgh Closes Freshman Applications
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ The State University of New York College at Plattsburgh has closed
admission of new freshmen for the fall 2006 academic semester as of May 3.
The number of freshmen who have chosen to enroll in the fall is up substantially and has exceeded the College's goal.
"Current freshman deposits are strong at 1,082. 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 19 percent over last year and have surpassed the targeted goal of 975 students. 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.
"Our freshmen class for next fall looks very promising," said President John Ettling. "Members of the admissions staff should be proud of the hard work they've done during the past year bringing in this class of freshmen. This has also 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, graduate students and readmits – those students who once attended Plattsburgh and wish to return to complete their studies.
