MAKE YOUR DEPOSITS AND TELL US YOUR PREFERENCES
Pay your deposits and fee, and complete your New Student Preferences by logging on to Stony Brook’s secure SOLAR System, using your Stony Brook ID number and password. Your ID number and your original password are printed on the upper right of your letter of admission. If you logged into the SOLAR System in the past, you were already prompted to change your password. If you do not remember your password, go to the SOLAR login page, select "SOLAR Password Help," and follow the instructions to reset it.
If you prefer to mail your payments, you may print out PDF’s of the Admission Acceptance/Deposit Form and Orientation Fee Payment Form.
- Pay your $150 Tuition Deposit. Your tuition deposit must be received by the date indicted on your letter of admission.
- Pay your $200 Campus Housing Deposit. All new freshmen are guaranteed housing provided the tuition/housing deposit is received and their new student preferences are submitted online by May 1.
Note: On-campus living is a very popular option at Stony Brook. More than 80 percent of our new freshmen enjoy the comforts and stimulation our residential learning environment provides. To offer as many students as possible the experience of our residential learning environment, strategies that include assigning three students to a double room and other options will be utilized.

PAY HEALTH INSURANCE OR APPLY FOR A WAIVER
Stony Brook requires all full time students to have comprehensive health insurance, and provides a plan for purchase by those who do not currently have such a plan. If you already have health insurance, you must apply for a health insurance waiver or you will be automatically billed for SB's plan. Once you register for classes, a fee for health insurance will be posted on your account. Log on to SOLAR and look for insurance waivers under “Student Financial Services” on the menu bar.
EXPERIENCE STONY BROOK
Just a few days before the start of classes you will participate in Experience Stony Brook (part 2 of Orientation), where you will discover the vast resources and opportunities available to you as an SB student. You’ll attend various programs and workshops focused on your academic success, campus involvement, and health and wellness.
