Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. - The State University of New York says that approximately 20,000 notices will be sent to current and former students who may be eligible for a tuition refund as a result of paying non-resident tuition while eligible for the in-state rate between the Fall 2007 and Spring 2011 semesters.

Students who may be eligible will receive a notice from SUNY in the coming weeks, and may include those who:

  • Graduated from an approved New York State High School or received a GED in New York State; and
  • Attended one of the SUNY schools listed below at any time from the Fall 2007 to the Spring 2011 terms; and
  • Paid the Non-Resident Tuition Rate (also called the out-of-state rate).

To receive any money, eligible students must submit a Claim Form by September 4, 2013, to:

E-mail: classrefund@suny.edu

Mail: Claims Administrator

Affected campuses are: UAlbany, Alfred State, Binghamton, Brockport, University at Buffalo, Buffalo State, Canton, Cobleskill, Cortland, Delhi, Downstate Medical Center, Empire State College, Environmental Science & Forestry, Farmingdale State, Fredonia, Geneseo, Maritime, Morrisville State, New Paltz, Old Westbury, Oneonta, Optometry, Oswego, Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Purchase, Stony Brook, SUNYIT, and Upstate Medical University.

The notices are being issued as a result of a recent class action settlement agreement in the case of Strum, et al. v.
