In honor of New York State Application Month, state colleges and universities have joined together to waive application fees for students.
The pact marks the first time SUNY, CUNY and New York’s private institutions are providing the service.
"Education is the backbone of our society, and I am committed to providing opportunities that support every student’s journey to a higher education,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a statement. “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 service last until Oct. 31.
