This page is intended to provide you with the information you need to evaluate SUNY Plattsburgh so you can feel comfortable and confident sending your child to the North Country.
Plattsburgh is a small city, and it’s a generally a pleasant and safe place—but we don’t take any chances. Our University Police department is a branch of the New York State Police, and officers are available 24/7. We also have a variety of technologies, procedures and resources that keep campus secure.
Along with keeping them safe, you’ll want us to look out for your student’s well-being, academically, emotionally and physically. We have a host of resources in place to do so, from Campus Housing and Community Livingand our health and counseling center to our learning center. Qualified staff members abound.
You want to know we’re setting students up to succeed, helping them set and achieve their goals. Whether your child strives to get a job straight after graduation or get accepted to the perfect graduate school, the Career Development Center and other offices can help. And, of course, you’ll want to talk dollars. Look no further than our Cost and Aid information page and net price calculator.
