International Student Tuition/Costs

A Great Educational Value

How much is it going cost me? It’s one of the biggest questions you might have in planning your study abroad experience.

International Award: Most full-time international students seeking a SUNY Cortland degree receive a financial award worth $5,200 per year, making our tuition among the most affordable for four-year colleges in the State University of New York system.

Partner University Perks: Exchange and non-matriculated students coming for one or two semesters also might be eligible for a tuition waiver through partnership agreements with their home institutions. Regardless of how long you study in Cortland, you’ll soon realize the experience is worth every dollar.

Student workingEarn Income: You’re also eligible to work on campus for academic departments, administrative offices, recreation facilities or our dining services provider. It’s a common way to earn income while studying here.

Live for Free: Long-term international students — those who study at the College for more than one year — can apply for positions as resident assistants in residence halls. They receive free housing and a pay stipend in exchange for their service. In short, there are plenty of ways to make your Cortland experience a very affordable one.
