Student Handbook

A Message from SGA officers

Welcome to the State University of New York at Potsdam!

The student handbook explains your rights and privileges as a student here at SUNY Potsdam. The few years you spend here will go quickly, but you are likely to make some of the best memories of your life here.

This handbook is designed to help you better understand the expectations the university has of you and it is also here so you can understand what you should expect to get from the staff, faculty, and students of this campus.

It contains valuable information such as contacts for different services offered to you as a student, and organizations and activities on this campus. I hope you find this information useful through out your college career here at Potsdam.

Your experience here at Potsdam is not only about your education, it is also about learning things about yourself and others while you are here. My best advice to you from one student to another is take advantage of the opportunities offered to you here. Join clubs, make friends, take classes you know nothing about and most of all talk to those around you and experience life and all it has to offer you. 

Best Wishes,

Student Government Association
