Excelsior Scholarship

The Excelsior Scholarship is New York state's new free-tuition program for select students attending SUNY/CUNY two-year and four-year colleges and universities. 

On April 26, we hosted a public forum at DCC on what you need to know about New York’s new tuition-free college plan. DCC’s director of Financial Aid, Susan Mead, covered the benefits and restrictions of the Excelsior Scholarship and how to determine if it’s a good fit for the student and family.
