Selecting Your Undergraduate College


Each Undergraduate College has its own specific theme and is affiliated with its own residential community. A student's placement in their Undergraduate College decides the theme of their one-credit first-year seminars, their college community, as well as which residential community they will be living in for their first year. In order to select which Colleges might be a student's first, second and third choice, incoming students can browse the various aspects of the Colleges on this site: theme, courses, communities, events, programs, faculty and staff, and more.

Submitting your preferences:

Once your deposit is submitted and processed, you will receive access from Admissions to submit your Undergraduate College preferences on your SBU Applicant Portal.

The form should be filled out as soon as you receive access, but no later than May 5th.
