Types of Financial Aid

Bigger Value

Although SUNY’s tuition is already modest compared to other colleges, financial aid is available.  And, it comes in many forms based on merit and/or need.  At SUNY you’ll find financial support ranging from scholarships, grants, federal work study, New York Tuition Assistance Program, SUNY Tuition Credit, State University Student Assistance, and veterans benefits to Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans and alternative loans.  Some of these types of aid require repayment, while others do not, and most students use a combination of these to pay for college.
