Bethany Bump is reporting in the Times Union applications are now available for a new state program that could help private college students reduce their tuition by $6,000 this fall. The Enhanced Tuition Award is available at 30 participating colleges and universities statewide, including the College of Saint Rose in Albany, for students from families earning less than $100,000. Like the state’s new free tuition program for public college students, the income threshold will eventually increase to $125,000 in 2019. The only participating college in the Capital Region is the College of Saint Rose in Albany. Other colleges and universities said the award came too late in the season for them to properly budget for it. Read the full story in the Times Union.
