The application for the Enhanced Tuition Award is now available, and as the only Capital Region college to opt-in to the new state program, we want to spread the word.

The Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA) is a new program that The College of Saint Rose – along with only 29 other New York State private universities and colleges – will offer its students for the 2017-18 academic year. It provides qualified New York State residents who apply and are chosen by New York State with up to $6,000 toward their tuition, half of which will be provided by the College.

For the New York State students who apply and are selected by the state this makes the investment in a great Saint Rose education even greater. The College estimates as many as 900 incoming and current Saint Rose students may be eligible for the award based on the state’s criteria. The last day to apply for the Enhanced Tuition Award is August 21.
