NYS Excelsior Scholarship - Making Public College Tuition-Free

Beginning this fall, New York State residents may be able to attend Herkimer County Community College tuition free through the Excelsior Scholarship program. The first-in-the-nation plan will be phased in over three years, beginning for New Yorkers making up to $100,000 annually in the fall of 2017, increasing to $110,000 in 2018, and reaching $125,000 in 2019. It is anticipated that the Excelsior Scholarship application will be available in late May.
