Tuition Assistance

We ask that new Resident Directors, Community Directors and Assistant Directors do not take classes during their first semester so they can become acclimated to the University and their position. Our union, United University Professions, offers a space available program which covers tuition for one classroom-based course (i.e. not an independent study) during each semester taken at a SUNY operated campus.  Partial assistance for an additional course can be secured through the Tuition Waiver program (based on funding).
