Students Save More by Borrowing Less
It’s become common for American college students to graduate with tens of thousands of dollars in loans to repay. But CUNY’s affordable, no-surprises tuition and availability of financial aid greatly lighten the burden on its students. Fewer CUNY students take out loans to help pay for tuition, compared to students attending other institutions. Those CUNY students who do borrow for their education owe less on average at graduation than their peers at public and private colleges and universities in New York.
