ESF Office of Communications,
Applications from out-of-state students are reviewed in accordance with the same academic standards as in-state students. It is no more or less difficult for out-of-state students to be admitted than for New York residents. In fact, nearly 20% of ESF students are from out of state, which is one of the highest percentages in SUNY! There is a significant difference in tuition rates though, which you can see here.
