Cost of Attendance

Thank you for your interest in the State University of New York at New Paltz! Below is the total estimate of direct billed and indirect (non-billed) costs for a full-time undergraduate or graduate student at New Paltz for one year (fall & spring). This estimated cost of attendance, also known as a 'budget', is an estimate of what a family may spend for an academic year at New Paltz. The budget is not a bill- instead, it helps you estimate your total yearly cost and is also used for financial aid eligibility. The fall and spring billing invoices will be issued electronically by Student Accounts and will only include direct billed costs such as tuition, fees, etc., whereas the budget below includes additional expenses you may incur such as transportation and books.

If you plan to enroll part-time your charges will be reduced per our tuition and fees schedule.
