After the popularity of SUNY Potsdam’s first campus-specific Free Application Week, the College will offer a second round kicking off this weekend. 

SUNY Potsdam will offer another Free Application Week for all freshman and transfer applicants, from Saturday, April 6 through Sunday, April 14.  

“Our first Free Application Week was such a success that we decided to bring it back for another round. Once again, we have extended our Free Application Week to include the weekends beforehand and afterward, so as many applicants can benefit as possible,” said Director of Admissions Terry Francis ’97 & ’00.  

To take advantage, students just need to apply between April 6 or 14, using either the SUNY Application or the Common Application. During this period, the campus will cover the $50 application fee for all undergraduate applications. 

The Free Application Week coincides with SUNY Potsdam’s special eclipse admissions event combining a special visit opportunity along with celebrating totality on campus, to be held on Monday, April 8. 

The Free Application Week builds on SUNY Potsdam’s emphasis on holistic admissions and access. SUNY Potsdam was proud to be the first campus in the SUNY System to move to test-optional admissions in 2010, shifting to an admissions process that focuses on applicants’ track records in high school and/or college, rather than standardized test scores.  

For anyone who wants to experience campus for themselves, the Office of Admissions is open for personalized tours. To set up a visit or a chat with an admissions counselor, go to
