Pay online: Sign-in or create a new account | Click on “Make a payment” | Enter the amount indicated on your acceptance letter for the “Admissions Tuition Deposit-Graduate”

After paying your tuition deposit, submit the online confirmation form.

Upon receipt of your tuition deposit and confirmation form, your campus computer and e-mail account activation information will be sent to your personal e-mail address.

Please note: our health requirements include proof of having received the COVID vaccine. Learn more here. Complete the required health forms and return them to the Wellness Center by August 1 for a fall start and January 1 for a spring start. For your security, medical records should be faxed (rather than e-mailed) to 315-792-7371. Forms are available online.

Graduate students have the option of living on or off-campus. If you choose to live off-campus it is your responsibility to secure your housing. Visit Residential Life to explore on-campus housing and dining options.

Once you have paid your tuition deposit you will be advance registered for 9 credit hours of coursework. You will be notified via e-mail when the registration has been processed so you can log into your Banner student record account to view it. Should you wish to increase from 9 to 12 credits, please notify us as this will impact your billing statement.

Billing notification for the semester will be sent to your campus e-mail address when it is available. You will be directed to log into Banner to view your bill, confirm your charges, and make payment. Failure to pay your bill by the due date may result in the loss of your course registration. Payment for the semester is expected prior to your arrival, so it is important that you begin to think now about your options for settling your bill.

Your options for paying your bill include:

  • Credit Card – Log into the secure area of Banner Web Self Service, click on “Student Services and Financial Aid” located right above the Search box. Click on “Student Records”, click on “E-Billing and Payments”, select appropriate term, make full payment, or enroll in the payment plan.
  • Money Order or Check (Demand Draft) – You can mail in a money order or check (demand draft) from your home country, payable to "SUNY Polytechnic Institute".

Submit our International Student Arrival Form to notify us of your travel plans. You must arrive to the US in time for the start of our International Orientation program which begins a week prior to the start of the semester. Details to follow.

 


Post-Arrival Enrollment Steps


International students are required to participate in a mandatory orientation program the week before classes begin.  This includes placement events for those students who have received a graduate assistantship offer. Details regarding orientation week will follow.  

Reach out to the Wellness Center at wellnesscenter@sunypoly.edu to confirm that all of your forms have been submitted and that you are compliant with the health requirements so that you don’t lose your course registration.

If you currently have coursework in progress, bring your final marksheets/transcripts and your provisional/final certificate of degree with you to the US. The International Admissions Office must receive the official documents or attested copies upon your arrival.
