Today Is The Deadline For Free Tuition


(Albany, NY) -- Today is the deadline New York State residents can apply for free tuition at the State University of New York. 

Lawmakers passed a bill as part of the state budget that allows residents this year with a combined household income of 100-thousand dollars or less to get free tuition at in state schools.  There's been more than 70-thousand people who have applied for the free ride so far.

Applications to SUNY schools for this fall are up six percent compared to last year.
