Financial Aid

Total costs vary depending on the college, its location,
full-time or part-time enrollment, program of study, delivery
method of program, housing accommodations, personal
expenses and other individual factors. State University
colleges have higher tuition rates for students who are not
New York State residents. Review residency requirements
at suny.edu/smarttrack.

Financial aid programs include academic scholarships,
need-based grants, student and parent loans and employment. Both the federal and state governments offer financial aid programs. Other sources of assistance may include
scholarships from private organizations, foundations,
fraternal groups and SUNY campuses.

For students taking fewer than 12 semester hours
(part-time study), New York State tuition is $295 per
credit hour for baccalaureate and associate degree
programs at state-operated campuses.

To apply for federal and state aid, you must first complete
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The
FAFSA can be completed online at fafsa.gov beginning
October 1 of each year.

Tuition-Free SUNY

Smart Track

The Excelsior Scholarship, in combination with
other student financial aid programs, allows qualified
New York State residents to attend a SUNY college
tuition-free.

We believe it is important for students to clearly
see the bottom line on college costs and remain
committed to transparency regarding the financial
commitments of attending our campuses. That's
why we created Smart Track, a collection of
resources designed to help students and families
understand college costs and develop a financial
plan for the future.
