SUNY Potsdam is a first-choice destination for performing arts students worldwide, and the new 97,000-square-foot Performing Arts Center promises to lift the College's highly acclaimed programs in theatre and the arts even higher.
We're the first SUNY school to merge academics, residential accommodations, and the faculty into our first year program. And it all starts with our Welcome Team.
When it comes to application review, SUNY Potsdam takes a holistic approach. We focus on previous academic performance, emphasizing the cumulative grade point average and curriculum rigor. We also use a letter of recommendation, essay, and activities to learn more about our applicants. We are SAT/ACT optional. Learn more about the types of students accepted at SUNY Potsdam.

SUNY Potsdam is excited about the potential of the new Excelsior program. We look forward to following the details of the program as they emerge and will do everything we can to assure that students who apply for the aid through the State of New York and then are accepted into the program will receive the amount of Excelsior aid they are eligible for based on the criteria that New York State has established. Students can sign up to be informed when the application will be available here.
