Online Out of State Rates

Effective Fall 2020, the non-resident online tuition rate will be charged to students taking courses in exclusively online academic programs that have been previously approved by the Provost’s Office and registered by the New York State Education Department.  These programs are in distance education format, consistent with the student’s intention to take courses exclusively online at the time of application and matriculation toward the degree. Students who are non-residents whose intent is to be on campus learning, but may be studying remotely, will be charged the nonresidential rate.  Approved online academic programs offered at Stony Brook are listed below.  Non-NYS resident students who do not have a permanent or local presence in NYS may be eligible for the online out of state rate, which is 1.2 times the NYS resident rate specific to their program.   Tuition rates can be found here

New York State resident students enrolled in online academic programs will be charged the tuition rate for resident students. 

SUNY Legal Counsel Guidance: 
Based on the legislative history of the online rate, which is set forth in NYS Education Law §355(2)(h)(4), it is clear such rate was intended only for those online courses in programs that are exclusively online. The legislative intent was to apply such rate to courses in programs that are exclusively online for students with no intention of coming to learn on a campus.
