The SUNY Board of Trustees voted to increase the tuition at SUNY’s 29 four-year campuses by $200 from $6,670 a year to $6,870. It’s the second year in a row tuition will rise by that amount. For those students whose households earn less than $110,000 a year go to college full-time and get good grades tuition will be covered through the second year of the state’s Excelsior Scholarship program. In its first year the program provided free tuition to about 22,000 students.
