10 Of The Most Affordable Universities In America

|

On April 10, Governor Andrew Cuomo made New York the only state in the country to offer universal public college tuition for working and middle-class residents.

“Today, college is what high school was – it should always be an option even if you can’t afford it,” Gov. Cuomo said in a statement. “The Excelsior Scholarship will make college accessible to thousands of working and middle-class students and shows the difference that government can make.”
