If you’re looking to apply for free SUNY and CUNY tuition this fall, the deadline is quickly approaching.
With about a month left before classes begin, the deadline to apply for the Excelsior Scholarship is about a week away— July 21.
College financial aid advisors say now is the time to apply and submit the necessary documents.
To apply, you need to have copies of your 2015 New York State income tax return(s) filed by you and your parents, as applicable.
You also need your current unofficial college transcript showing the number of credits you earned each year prior to applying for the program if you have previously attended college.
The last bit of paperwork you need is your Student Aid Report (SAR), which you received when you filed your completed FAFSA.
