New York Set To Offer Free Tuition At 4-Year Colleges
10 Apr 2017
In a major victory for the movement to improve access to higher education, New York is set to become the only state that offers free tuition at four-year colleges.
Deemed the Excelsior Scholarship, the free tuition plan is included in the $163 billion state budget approved Saturday by the Democrat-controlled Assembly.

Excelsior Scholarship will cover tuition for any New Yorkers whose families earn less than $125,000 a year and who are accepted to one of the state’s public community colleges or public four-year universities ― which cost approximately between $4,350 and $6,470 annually.
