DEPOSIT REFUND INFORMATION
The deposit may be refunded if a written request for a refund is received in the Office of Student Accounts as follows:
- Fall Enrollment - by May 1 (or if accepted after May 1, 30 days after the date of acceptance)
In no case will refunds be considered if a written request is received after the official first day of classes for that semester. (SUNY Administrative Policies 057.7)
B. BE SURE YOUR HIGH SCHOOL SENDS US YOUR FINAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT
Your high school is required to send the Office of Undergraduate Admission a final official copy of your high school transcript with the date of graduation posted on it. This is necessary for both residency documentation and financial aid verification. If your high school guidance office has not done so, please request they do so immediately.
C. SUBMIT AP, IB, OR COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
If you have taken college courses, AP courses, or IB courses while in high school and wish to receive credit for these courses, you must request that official transcripts/score reports be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admission order to be considered for credit.
- AP test scores must be submitted directly from the College Board to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.
- IB results must be submitted directly from the International Baccalaureate Organization to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.
- Official college transcripts for college courses taken in high school must be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.
The due date of the above documents is the mid-point of the student's first semester at New Paltz. Transfer credit and/or course waivers may not be accepted beyond this date.
D. SUBMIT THE HEALTH REPORT AND PHYSICIAN'S CERTIFICATE OF IMMUNIZATION
All new students, regardless of age, number of credits taken, or previous college attendance, are required by New York State to submit the Health Report and Physician’s Certificate of Immunization. Visit the Student Health Center website for the necessary forms and instructions. These forms need to be received by the Student Health Center no later than the first day of classes; if not received the student will be deregistered from all classes and asked to leave their residence hall.
E. SIGN UP FOR: Student Orientation and Course Registration.
All freshmen are expected to attend our three day Student Orientation and Registration program for new students and their families.
Academic advising, course registration, transition from high school to college activities and much more take place during the orientation program. Detailed information will be sent to all freshmen who have submitted their Pre-Enrollment Deposit/EOP Confirmation Form from the Office of Student Development.
INFORMATION FOR NEWLY ACCEPTED U.S. SERVICE MEMBERS
Applicants to the college who have accepted an offer of admission by submitting the Pre-Enrollment Deposit, but who have not yet registered for classes, are eligible to defer admission and enrollment. They are permitted to enroll with the next entering class following discharge from active duty, provided the college receives adequate notice of the applicant's intention to enroll. The applicant need not re-apply for admission or pay any additional application fee or pre-enrollment deposit. Applicants must contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission to request a military deferral.
