SUNY - STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
Students initially file one application for the S.U.N.Y. system which allows for six campus choices (students may add additional campuses later). The SUNY system has transitioned to an online application . Students should complete this application, save it, and bring the printout for Mr. Rigney to check over in October. As with CUNY or any online application, students should not submit their application until it has been checked by Mr. Makris. Students can enter their transcript information into SUNY's SOAR system after submitting their initial application but this step is not required as of the 2013-2014 admissions cycle.
Some institutions will require a supplemental application in addition to the initial S.U.N.Y. application. Students should complete their supplemental pieces, which typically require an essay, and submit them to Mr. Rigney for proofreading with their private and /or out-of state applications in December.
