How to Apply

This is your chance to tell us about yourself—your goals, your activities, your accomplishments—and help us decide whether SUNY Oswego is right for you.

SUNY Oswego accepts either The Common Application or the SUNY Application. You will only choose one option. Both applications require a non-refundable $50 fee and a teacher/counselor evaluation. If submitting the SUNY application we also require applicants to fill out the SUNY Supplemental Application. You will need to submit a transcript and the required SAT or ACT score. We also require a recommendation, information about activities and an essay. You may need additional items if you are a transfer, international or EOP student.
