Undergraduate Admission

Congratulations on your acceptance to Russell Sage College or Sage College of Albany! We look forward to having you join the Sage community. If you have additional questions regarding your acceptance and next steps for enrollment, refer to the links below or contact our friendly Admission Office.


Submit your FAFSA form

Students must file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to be considered for need-based financial aid from Sage. In order for Sage  to receive your information, you must provide our school code: 002810.

In order for the Financial Aid Committee to process a student's application for need-based financial aid, they must have a Social Security Number on file. Please make sure that this information is provided on the application.

Register for Accepted Student Weekend

We have planned a special event just for you!  Please register for one of our upcoming Accepted Student Weekends.  However, if you can’t make it to any of these event, we suggest you call 518-244-2217 to arrange for a personal visit.  We also are hosting Accepted Student Receptions in areas around the Northeast.  

Submit Your Enrollment Deposit

If you are a recently admitted student to Sage, you will want to make sure we have received your enrollment deposit* so that we can begin preparing for your arrival. 

  • Pay your enrollment deposit online
  • The enrollment deposit deadline for first-year students who have been accepted to the Nursing Program is May 1st.  Students accepted to the nursing program who pay the enrollment deposit after May 1st will not be offered a place in the class. 

*Please note: your enrollment deposit is non-refundable as we will be holding a place for you at Sage.

Our deadline for on campus housing for the Fall 2016 semester on the Albany campus is June 1, 2016.  Please submit your enrollment deposit prior to this date to ensure a housing assignment.


Once your enrollment deposit is paid and processed in our system, within 24 hours, a Sage student email account will be created for you, called MySage. Your new Sagenet account information (Log-in ID and Password) will be sent to your email address from your admission application.

Your new Sage Log-in/User ID and Password gives you access to SageAdvisor. In SageAdvisor, students can view their profile, academic information, degree requirements, pay their bill and register for classes.

The Academic Advising Office will contact all new First Year and Transfer students and will provide you with your academic advisor's contact information, along with helpful resources regarding Advising & Registration. New Students meet with their faculty advisors during Registration Days in the summer in order to adjust their schedules if needed.
