All prospective graduate students must apply online at www.oneonta.edu/gradstudies. Paper application forms (if absolutely necessary) may be obtained from the Office of Graduate Studies, 135 Netzer Administration Building. E-mail questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, a $50 non-refundable application processing fee is required of students. An application submitted without the accompanying fee will not be processed. The $50 application fee is waived for SUNY Oneonta undergraduate students.
Applicants should check the appropriate program description in this Catalog, refer to the Graduate Studies web page and/or contact the academic department offering the program for information on special admission requirements, such as the submission of test scores, interviews, letters of recommendation, or portfolios. All documents required for departmental admission should be submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies for processing. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed by departments.
Students are accepted for admission in a specific semester. Some programs allow deferral of admission to a subsequent semester. To obtain a deferral of admission, a student must submit a written request, and that request must be approved by the department offering the program. Students must begin their program in the semester for which they are accepted or in the semester to which their acceptance is deferred. Students who do not register for and attend classes in the semester for which they are accepted or to which they have had their acceptance deferred will need to re-apply.
