Cuomo: More than 20k NY college students received Excelsior Scholarship”

53% - who will be off the hook for payment include those who get regular financial aid, Pell grants and the state Tuition Assistance Program, as well as the new Excelsior Scholarship.

More than 22,000 students across the state received the Excelsior Scholarship, a program that covers tuition for full-time students at New York's public colleges and universities.

Excelsior Scholarship applicants who met the program's eligibility requirements received cost-free tuition.

Plenty of students here in the state are benefiting from the new tuition perk for CUNY and SUNY schools.

Cuomo says a college degree is necessary to succeed in today's economy and the state program allows more New Yorkers to reach their full potential.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says more than half of full-time SUNY and CUNY in-state students are tuition-free this year.

Governor Cuomo made the announcement Sunday, saying the good news is thanks in-part to the Excelsior Scholarship.

The scholarship provides up to $5,500 a semester for full-time students who live in NY, maintain a passing grade point average and come from households making less than $100,000 year. However, families making up to $100,000 qualified this year as the program is phased in. The qualifying threshold will climb to $125,000 in two years.
