College Board of Trustees Votes for a Second Year Tuition Freeze and Reduced Student Fees

At its April meeting, as a gesture of community support for our students and their families, the College’s Board of Trustees announced that the 2021-2022 College Operating Budget will include a second one-year freeze to the annual rate of tuition (the current annual tuition rate for SUNY Suffolk is $5,470 for full-time County residents). By offering an affordable option for students to stay local as they continue pursuit of their education goals, the Board hopes more students will choose to enroll at Suffolk. In addition, the Board voted to waive the College’s vehicle registration fee; to charge the physical education fee only for those students taking face-to-face classes; to modify the student activities and meal plan fees; and to continue to charge the distance education fee as a one-time charge versus as a per-class fee.
