There is another program in jeopardy for New York State college students. This one is for New Yorkers who are able to attend state colleges tuition-free. This program may not be available because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Hey New York, it looks like we're about to be the only station going tuition free!
So how could this affect you? Well, the Excelsior Scholarship, as they're calling it states that if you're a family that makes under $125,000 a year (which, um, is a lot of us, no?) then your student could be heading to a 4-year college tuition free!
Not lying. The Ostrofsky's of Houston, Texas made a promise to their five kids - they would have no student loans to pay off. These parents may be eating their words (and lots of macaroni and cheese dinners) real soon.
