REPORT: SUNY won’t have in-state tuition hike this year

A proposed tuition increase for in-state students at New York’s public colleges and universities will not be part of the final budget agreement, according to an insider source.


However, out-of-state students attending the State University of New York (SUNY) and the City University of New York (CUNY) can expect tuition increases ranging from 5% to 15%, depending on the campus.

Governor Kathy Hochul’s initial budget proposal aimed to raise tuition at SUNY and CUNY campuses by tying it to the higher education price index.

Hochul described the increase as a “modest” measure intended to generate revenue for public higher education. The governor’s office defended the original proposal, stating that students receiving full tuition assistance through the Excelsior scholarship would not be impacted.
