Accepted Student Deposit Deadline for Fall 2020 Extended

Dear Students,

We are looking forward to hearing from you regarding your decision to attend SUNY ESF, but we understand that right now, it may be difficult for students and their families to finalize a college decision. We hope the following options will help. ESF is extending the enrollment commitment and deposit deadline to June 1, 2020. Additional enrollment commitment actions are also extended as follows:

  • Requests for a waiver of the deposit payment must be submitted no later than June 1, 2020. The extenuating circumstances for the request must be explained and emailed to esfinfo@esf.edu.
  • Requests for a refund of the deposit will be extended to July 1, 2020. Requests must be emailed to esfinfo@esf.edu.
  • No deposit refund requests will be considered after July 1, 2020.

If you have any questions about these changes or your particular circumstances, please email us at esfinfo@esf.edu.

The ESF community is making every effort to prepare for your arrival on-campus in August and we look forward to hearing from you. Please continue to consult our website for updates at www.esf.edu. For particular information for Accepted Students go to https://www.esf.edu/accepted/.
