College Tuition is on its way to being free in New York City. Under the plan — which New
York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo proposed in January — the state will supplement aid for in-state residents whose families earn $125,000 or less, providing tuition–free education at all state public two- and four-year colleges. College Tuition being free will allow for students who have the dream of going to college to finally be able to make the leap into a getting a college education.
Free College Tuition for residents in New York will make the city of New York a very competitive city. Governor Andrew Cuomo believes that getting a college degree, is like having a high school diploma some fifty years ago, you just can’t make it without one. The option to go to college should be there even if you don’t want to go. Students would be required to pay for room and board. In addition to that, they would have to live and work in the city for the same number of years the scholarship was given.
Many other states have low College Tuition or some sort of program to help students get into college.
