Tuition Vouchers

You are encouraged to take advantage of the low-cost, high-quality education offered through the colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY), select colleges of the State University of New York (SUNY) and select schools of Touro College.

The Tuition Assistance Voucher Program allows you to take courses without paying upfront tuition costs. The benefit provides you with a voucher that covers a maximum of six credits per semester for required courses (courses that satisfy program requirements leading to an undergraduate or graduate degree).

Vouchers are not provided for non-credit courses. Before enrolling in any program, discuss your plans with one of our counselors to ensure  your program is approved for a voucher since there are some non-healthcare majors that the benefit does not cover. In general, programs that advance your career with your employer or are in a healthcare-related field are approved.
