Full-time tuition for New York residents ranges between approximately $194–$220 per credit hour. That’s ridiculously cheap. If you can’t claim state residency, you’ll pay about three times that amount. Also, as you know if you are a New Yorker and probably have heard if you aren’t, New York City can be a painfully expensive place to live. But that shouldn’t dissuade prospective students, since about 80 percent of students receive aid.
