Excelsior Scholarship


The Deadline is Monday, December 4, 2017.

In April, New York became the first state in the nation to offer tuition-free college at public colleges and universities for families making up to $100,000 per year. Does this mean if you meet eligibility requirements, you could attend Jefferson tuition-free? Yes!

Students applying for the Excelsior Scholarship must also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and TAP applications.

You can learn more about the Excelsior Scholarship on the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation website at The most updated information is published here.
