Drumlin Hall at SUNY Dutchess
ALBANY- The State University of New York (SUNY) announced the month of October will be a no-fee application period for prospective students. For the first time, 40 New York private colleges and universities are participating in the program as well.
SUNY has dropped application fees for all campuses in an effort to make the process more accessible, especially for those who may struggle to pay application fees. Fees are being waved as part of College Application Month. “Education is the backbone of our society, and I am committed to providing opportunities that support every student’s journey to a higher education,” said Governor Kathy Hochul. “As we celebrate College Application Month in New York State, I am thrilled that SUNY, CUNY, and several of New York’s private institutions will waive application fees. Removing financial barriers enables students who may not have considered completing an application due to financial constraints to take the first steps of their educational journey. I urge all seniors in the state to apply to at least one college this month and make the most of this unprecedented initiative.” The complete list of participating colleges and universities, information on when fees will be waived, and how to apply to each school can be found HERE
