SUNY Potsdam welcomes all students with prior military Experience!

The Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 requires educational institutions to make certain disclosures to students using federal military and/or VA educational benefits. To view and print a copy of an estimated personalized cost of attendance you can visit the SUNY Net Price Cost Calculator  and select SUNY Potsdam from the dropdown. Additional financial information can be found at the NCES College Navigator site.

The SUNY Financial Aid Plan (FAP) will provide a more in-depth analysis and accurate picture of student cost once the student has filed their FAFSA, completed a SUNY application, and has been accepted by a campus.

Veteran Support Services is here to assist you with the transition from the military to College life.

SUNY Potsdam is a proud supporter of all our Military Affiliated Students (MAS).  We as an institution thank you and your loved ones for your service.

We recognize and appreciate the challenges experienced by those serving, and those who have served in our Nation’s military, including family members. Our efforts to best serve and support our military affiliated students include providing a dedicated, experienced professional specifically to serve our military affiliated population with academic advising, financial aid and benefits counseling as well as advocacy and general counseling.
