Now that you've been accepted, the next step is to secure your enrollment by paying the pre-admission and residence hall deposits. The $50 pre-admission deposit and $100 residence hall deposits may be paid multiple ways including:


  • Online: Students accepted for the Fall semester may pay their deposits through self-service Banner Web. The students Cobleskill ID (Banner ID) and PIN are required to log on. Both numbers are mailed to the student upon acceptance to SUNY Cobleskill. Please contact the Admissions Office at (518) 255-5525 if you are having access issues or are unable to find your PIN and/or Cobleskill ID.
  • Mail: A deposit reply card with multiple payment options is sent to all accepted students along with their acceptance packet. A check covering the deposit amount(s) may also be sent to the Student Accounts Office. If mailing a check, please make payment to "SUNY Cobleskill" and include the student's name and Cobleskill ID. Checks may be mailed to:
         Office of Student Accounts

Why do I need to pay a deposit?

The pre-admission and residence hall deposits will secure your status as an incoming student and, if applicable, notify the Residential Life Office of your housing request. Early payment is encouraged and may provide students with earlier access to the next steps in the enrollment process – including course registration and housing preferences.


When is the deposit due?

For fall entry, the $50 pre-admission and $100 residence hall deposit are due by May 1st or, if accepted after the May 1st deadline, within two weeks of receiving acceptance letter. The pre-admission deposit is fully refundable if a written request to the Office of Admissions is received by May 1st. The residence hall deposit is refundable if written request to the Director of Residential Life is received by July 1st.
