Do you qualify for free tuition? SUNY releases a Q&A

ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - New York is the first state in America to make its state school system free for middle class students.

But people still have questions about whether or not they’ll qualify.

In the wake of the state passing its budget – and making the Excelsior Scholarship program possible – the SUNY system has released a details question and answer FAQ.

The FAQ addresses a number of questions, including whether current students will be eligible next year for the scholarship (they will be) or whether graduate students are eligible (they aren’t).

In addition, NewsChannel 9 reported on Monday that there is no age limit for students who wish to take advantage of the program, but people already with a bachelor's degree are disqualified.
