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. Our school code is: 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

The 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.

The 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.

Your enrollment deposit is non-refundable as we will be holding a place for you at Sage.
