Rogers attends signing of Excelsior Scholarship

Sara Goldrick-Rab, a professor of higher education policy and sociology at Temple University, said the emphasis on free tuition could encourage many people to apply.

NY is banking on these future taxpayers staying in the state and adding to the economy as well as tax base. That is 420,000 more jobs than 2014.

Stanley said Oswego State has a long-standing commitment to higher education access, college completion and cost predictability. It's the hope of proponents such as Sanders and Hillary Clinton, who made debt-free college a key talking point in their Democratic presidential campaigns, that New York's first-in-the-nation free tuition program for middle-class students will spread to other states.

According to the New York State website, 37,922 families in Central New York have college-age students, and 79.6 percent of those families will be eligible. SUNY community college tuition is now $4,366 a year, on average, and CUNY tuition is $6,330 a year for undergrads at the four-year schools.

If Mr. Cuomo had succeeded as governor, hed be confident that recent graduates would want to stay in the state without either being bribed by a scholarship or being threatened to have to pay it back. And they played down the impact of the requirement, noting that there are exceptions and that 85 percent to 90 percent of SUNY students stay in NY after graduation. Those requirements vary across disciplines, degree programs and across the SUNY system from campus to campus. That provision isn't written into the law, but is expected to be included in the final rules set by the state's Higher Education Services Corporation. It also includes $8 million to pay for resources such as e-books.

"There is no child who will go to sleep tonight and say, I have great dreams, but I don't believe I'll be able to get a college education because parents can't afford it", Cuomo said.

State Sen. Toby Ann Stavisky (D-Flushing) helped secure the tuition, after years of advocacy to bring the program to fruition, introducing similar legislation in 2014. Studies have shown that part-time students have poor graduation rates.

While I think this is a great start, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has only scratched the surface of limited college access in NY state.

Rod Carew's new heart, kidney came from late NFL player
They were less than three months removed from losing their oldest child, and they knew the encounter would be raw. Their lives were connected back then and 18 years later, their lives would be connected once again.

Another crucial aspect of this plan is it will only cover tuition and, as students know, college costs do not end there.

Any student and family that can take advantage of this opportunity should do so without hesitation.

Capitol Region has 44,108 families with college age students, with 74.9 percent eligible. Germany is an extremely successful country, but lecture classes are huge and the country's universities are not generally ranked among the world's best.

But how can politicians voting to make other people pay for the college experiences of young people mean that anyone cares?

Most states already have a scholarship fund, like New York's Tuition Assistance Program, that can be used for either public or private colleges, Mr. Zumeta said.

NANCY L. Zimpher, SUNY's departing chancellor, said the program's emphasis on expanding eligibility was "innovative" and could be a "breakthrough". In order for students to qualify as state residents, they must have resided in NY for at least 12 continuous months prior to when they apply for free tuition.

However, she added that "without increased public investment in CUNY, Excelsior can not achieve its full potential". "The program primarily fills an aid gap for full-time middle class students ineligible for full tuition programs targeting low income students". He's now president of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government in Albany. This first-in-the-nation plan will be phased in over three years, beginning for families that make up to $100,000 in 2017, increasing to $110,000 in 2018 and $125,000 in 2019. A SUNY spokeswoman said the school does not expect to see any revenue losses under the Excelsior Scholarship because of that protection.

I graduated from two SUNY institutions and I worked in admissions for one as well.
