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.
