At Utica College, we are fully committed to making sure students from all income levels have access to all the benefits of a private higher education, including personalized mentoring and the most relevant learning experiences in and out of the classroom.
No college understands the need for affordability better than Utica College – which is why we boldly took the lead among New York’s private colleges in 2016 to reset our tuition price by lowering it $14,000.
Now Utica College has the best private college price among all of our peer institutions in the Northeast – and that’s before the financial aid we award as scholarships and grants to bring down your cost even further.
|Average Published Tuition Price (Fall 2016)|
|New York State Private Institutions||$25,679|
|New York State Public Institutions||$16,300|
|Utica College||SUNY with "Free" Tuition|
|Scholarships and grants can reduce tuition for families from all income levels.||Free tuition eligibility only for New York families with annual income of less than $100,000 in 2017 (phased up to $110,000 in 2018 and to $125,000 in 2019.)|
|Scholarship and grant amounts average from $7,000 to more than $14,000 for families with income of $110,000 or less.
||The free tuition scholarship amounts to an average of $6,470.|
|95% of students receive financial aid||As few as 5% of eligible students are expected to receive the free tuition scholarship.|
|An endowment assures the availability of scholarship and grant funding.||State funding may not be sufficient to award free tuition scholarships to all who qualify.|
|Students exceed the national on-time graduation rate even with freedom to vary their course loads.||There is no flexibility in credit hours per year for students who wish to keep the free tuition scholarship.|
|Graduates can live and work anywhere without financial aid repayment consequence.||Graduates must live and work in New York for the same number of years they received the scholarship, or else must repay it.|
"Students need to be up to date with the right equipment in order to get the best training and be ready for the real world. That is what I got when I graduated from Utica College and I'm very thankful for that because to this day I put into practice everything I learned at UC."
"As a TV news producer for WNBC I find myself using many of the lessons I was taught during my years at UC. The writing advice, the push to be aggressive, and most importantly - the confidence that I can succeed in such a competitive business. All of that was given to me at Utica College."
