New York

New York is home to several notable and expansive institutions. It boasts two Ivy League schools, the oldest Catholic institution in the northeast, and a service academy of the U.S. Army. Its citywide university system has 23 colleges and institutions serving more than 480,000 students, and its statewide public university system consists of 64 community colleges, technical colleges, undergraduate colleges, and doctorate-granting institutions that serve more than 460,000 students.

The New York State Office of Higher Education coordinates the state’s higher education system to assure that a high-quality postsecondary education is available to all. It collects and publishes accurate and timely educational information to help shape public policy, and it strengthens partnerships to achieve the most effective use of resources.

A major program between the governor’s office and the statewide public university system, the State University of New York (SUNY), also looks to maintain academic affordability and tuition stability. For the past 20 years, the average annual SUNY tuition increase was 6.7%, though there would be periods of no increases followed by sudden tuition spikes upwards of 40%. This new program, called NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program, outlines tuition increases so that there aren’t unpredictable and dramatic spikes in tuition. It would also guarantee tuition credits or discounts to students who are least able to afford tuition payments.
