It's Easy to Attend Summer Sessions

Enrollment for visiting students begins on April 7, 2015. The Visiting Student Application will be available February 23, 2015.

Many students enroll in writing and math classes to prepare for advanced university-level work. Other students enroll in introductory courses in a discipline they are thinking about majoring in or are interested in learning more about.

If you have already graduated from an accredited college or university visit the School of Professional Development to be admitted as a visiting non-matriculated graduate student.

Steps To Take

  2. Gain prior approval from your current institution (including other SUNYs) to ensure that these credits will be accepted toward your degree.
