Friday Knights Launches Bonds That Last 

Since 2004, Friday Knights has been an important resource to children on the autism spectrum and their families. It’s also been a place where amazing stories begin – like a child with autism and a neurotypical child who formed a strong bond, and a child who went from program participant to a program leader.

Saint Rose has always emphasized helping our neighbors. Check out this special story about a Saint Rose program that serves a powerful need in the community while shaping lives of kids on the spectrum.

College Further Commits to Affordability by Opting in to New York State’s Enhanced Tuition Award

The College of Saint Rose has opted in to New York State’s Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA), a new program that provides up to $6,000 in tuition assistance annually to eligible New York State students who attend private colleges and universities within the state and are chosen by the state to receive it.

Since its founding, Saint Rose has served students from every socio-economic background, and we continue to make this part of the American dream possible. A Saint Rose education is a transformative life experience for students who may not otherwise be able to afford college, and who may be the first in their families to attend college. Our decision to participate in New York’s new ETA program assists the very students Saint Rose currently enrolls, who graduate to become successful alumni in their professions and in their service to others. By choosing to participate in the ETA program for the 2017-2018 academic year, The College of Saint Rose affirms our mission of providing a high quality educational experience that is affordable.

For more information on the College’s affordability and its participation in the ETA, click here.
