SUNY Plattsburgh, home of the Cardinals, is part of the largest comprehensive university system in the United States. The university offers a diverse selection of more than 60 academic programs across three schools – Arts & Sciences, Business & Economics, and Education, Health & Human Services. Many of these programs are highly ranked and carry strong national and regional reputations that allow students to work with highly skilled faculty who prepare them to excel in their chosen fields and industries upon graduation. Our campus prioritizes enrollment growth and stabilization, student success, equity and inclusion, and engagement with our North Country region as our four pillars of success. And we are committed to providing each and every Cardinal student a high quality liberal arts education grounded in academic excellence and a well-rounded college experience.
SUNY Plattsburgh is a destination campus located in northern New York between the iconic Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain. The campus is a short walk from historic downtown Plattsburgh, New York, where area residents have access to a wide array of arts, food, and events throughout the year, and just over a 1 hour car ride from the cities of Burlington, Vermont, Montreal, Quebec, and Lake Placid, New York, which is best known by locals as a former site of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games.
