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.

What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
The SUNY system overall is a great system and it can be generally said that you get a lot for your money at any of their schools, but Oneonta exemplifies this fact quite well. As I stated before, I get to go on trips every semester and conduct research projects and so forth. Many of these activities can’t be done at larger or private schools and till the student is in their junior or senior year. There is not much more I can say that I haven’t already said before other than to assure you that for the price your paying, which is small compared to many colleges, you get a lot out of this school.
Christopher from Wynantskill, NY
I was considering many other schools but in the end I chose Oneonta mainly because of the price. I never really considered coming to a state school but I don't regret it at all. Some of the programs here, like the music industry program for instance, are very well-renowned. I am getting virtually the same education as my friends who are paying three times as much as I am. There is also a small student fee upon attending, but this fee is well-worth the price as it supports and allows the students to attend events cheaply or free of charge.
Kara from Watertown, NY
One of the cheapest schools in NY state, yet one of the best quality educational experiences overall.
Maureen from Washingtonville, NY
I feel that for the money I'm paying (it is a SUNY school) I'm receiving a priceless education. SUCO is really a place that you can reach your full potential, if you are willing to commit to your work and apply yourself. There are lots of opportunities for students who work hard and the faculty both notice and appreciate a dedicated student.
Chiara from Jefferson, NY
Definitely work at look, and yes for me its a bang for my buck!
Christopher from Pleasantville, NY
Depending on where you dorm and your meal plan, Oneonta is definitely an affordable college, especially if you are a New York resident!
Joseph from Mount Sinai, NY
Definitely worth going to this school for the amount of money you're paying.
Education Major
The fact that this school tuition is less then 5500, and it is ranked higher than most private colleges in New York speaks a lot for the bang for the buck part. Want to live off campus but don't feel like paying a lot for your four years of exploration? Go SUNY, better than the City colleges but up there with the private schools.
