Discussion of SUNY New Paltz's Admissions Standards:

SUNY New Paltz is one of the more selective university in New York's state university system. Over half of applicants will not be admitted, and those who do get in typically have grades and standardized test scores that are above average. In the scattergram above, admitted students are represented by the green and blue dots. You can see that the majority had combined SAT scores (RW+M) of 1050 or higher, an ACT composite score of 21 or higher, and a high school GPA of a "B+" or better. Scores and grades above these lower ranges will significantly improve your chances--you'll notice a lot of red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) overlapping with the green and blue in the lower ranges. You can also see that a significant percentage of admitted students had grades up in the "A" range.

It's important to realize that admission to SUNY New Paltz is based entirely on empirical data such as grades and test scores. A few students with strong grades and test scores do not get in, and some applicants who are below the norm manage to receive acceptance letters. This is because SUNY New Paltz has holistic admissions and tries to get to know the whole applicant, not just his or her grades and test scores. The university accepts both the Common Application and the Apply SUNY application. Regardless of which you choose, the admissions folks will be looking for a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation. And like most selective colleges, SUNY New Paltz takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. High grades in AP, IB, Honors, and Dual Enrollment classes will all play in your favor.
