June 28, 2017 - For-profit colleges want in on tuition-discount program

New York's for-profit colleges are waiting to find out if they will be able to offer students a discount on tuition through a new state program designed to make college more affordable. The Enhanced Tuition Award program was adopted with the 2017-18 state budget in April in response to concerns that free tuition to the state's public institutions would put its private institutions at a competitive disadvantage. Under the program, private colleges that agree to match the state's contribution would be able to offer eligible students a $6,000 discount on tuition. But the state's for-profit colleges were left out of the equation — a move the Association of Proprietary Colleges (APC) warned would disadvantage some 40,000 students who attend their schools.
