Center for Online Education With the completion of school, a large number of students are undecided about furthering their education. For these students, the biggest roadblock is knowing what field of study or career path to pursue and how to pay for a college education. To help solve this problem,there is  a comprehensive guide where students can research colleges and universities in New York (or any other state), or learn about schools by degree/major. In addition, there is a consolidated list of national scholarships and other forms of financial aid.

NY Colleges Affordability Guide When it comes to a cheap college experience in New York, you’ve got options. Colleges in the SUNY & CUNY systems offer substantial financial aid and there are plenty of smaller private schools that subsidize low-income students. Even better, New York has a truckload of state financial aid packages, including Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) grants, memorial scholarships, teacher incentive programs and loan forgiveness deals. Most of these programs are only available to New York State residents, but check the fine print for details.

Business Degrees in New York This will provide students in the New York area a means to research and compare colleges and programs in New York and to encourage them to attend a school within the State and avoid expensive out-of-state tuition costs associated with attending a university in another State.
