In-State Tuition In New York


Sep 11


Hey everyone,
Here are some quick things you will need to know when going to college in New York State. If you meet the following requirements you qualify for in-state tuition.
Please, don’t let anyone fool you into paying more than you should. Educate yourself on your rights and don’t be afraid to speak out when it comes to this matter. Sometimes school staff don’t know that you may qualify for in-state tuition regardless of immigration status. Please spread this to all your contacts so we can get the word out and reach those who don’t know they qualify. If you are having issues with your school regarding this, email us at
In solidarity,

Number: S.B. 7784 – see it here
