Residency Appeals

Students who have submitted a residency application to the Office of the Bursar and had their application denied do have a right to appeal the decision as per State University of New York (SUNY) Policy 7810, Section II.E.

Appeal Procedures

Appeals must be submitted in writing within 14 days of the receipt of the initial decision email.

Appeal letters should be mailed to:

  • SUNY Old Westbury Residency Appeal Committee
    State University of New York at Old Westbury
    P.O. Box 210
    Old Westbury, NY 11568-0210

Please include any relevant documentation you feel will support your appeal. The Office of the Bursar will forward your original application to the Appeals Committee. You do not need to submit documentation already included in your initial application.

The decision of the Appeals Committee will be mailed to your address on file with the campus.

All decisions made by the Residency Appeal Committee are final and cannot be further appealed.
