Happy New Year from SUNY!

Discover Financial Aid Day: Saturday, February 28

Free financial aid planning is available to prospective students and their families at numerous programs across SUNY.

Each host site will send a confirmation letter or email message with program details including start time, parking information, and schedule.

Pre-register to attend and to view the list of participating campuses.

Discover Bigger Financial Planning: SUNY Smart Track

Prospective students now have access to the web-based SUNY Smart Track Financial Literacy learning center that supports financial literacy through loan payment estimators, responsible borrowing strategies, and successful repayment planning. These resources are SUNY's bigger advantage, helping students and families make educated choices by providing them with the right tools and guidance throughout their time at SUNY.

You and your students can explore the Smart Track website by following these steps:

  • Click on Financial Literacy Tools (left side)
  • Click on Prospective Student button (green chalkboard)
  • Register and then receive an email message
  • Click on the link in the email message to receive full access to the website

Unsure about where to start? Check out the "Paying for College" course and the "Borrowing Money" and "Understanding a Paycheck" mini-modules. From there you can explore other courses and modules, as well as read articles about financing education, student loans and working in college.
