Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Cortland has so much to offer and I have rarely heard anyone say they wish they went to another school.
Laura from Brooklyn, NY
I love it here, it's so beautiful and I love my classes & professors.
Kaytlin from Wildwood, NJ
You can get a private school education for the cost of a public school. Everyone is very professional and excited to teach.
Crystal
Yes, it is expensive, but what college isn't? The meal plan may seem expensive but you get a lot for your money. There are quite a few places to eat and Neubig Dining Hall, the all you can eat place, gives you plenty of choices. The food is excellent everywhere. The school even provides bus transportation on the weekends to one of the plazas, which houses Walmart, Price Chopper, JC Penney, Kmart, Payless, Fashion Bug, and more. The money you pay to come to Cortland is well worth it.
Beth from Webster, NY
SUNY Cortland is definitely worth the price you pay and more. It's a public school in a private school setting. The location is not so bad and the education here is perfect. I believe that if you are looking for a school that is affordable as well as diverse and good based on academics, then Cortland is a good school for that.
Zhane from Springfield Gardens, NY
Suny Cortland has some of the best people and professors you will ever encounter. The people are very friendly and helpful. The professors are willing to be there for their students and help them succeed in the world and in college.
