What is the cheapest New York state colleges for out-of-state residents? I plan to do college online - not if that matters - but if it affects the price it certainly does for an out-of-state student. Also, my question applies to both two-year and four-year institutions.

I'm not sure, but the SUNY and CUNY websites have plenty of information in that regard: suny.edu - The State University of New York

Welcome to CUNY - The City University of New York

Interesting. There are tabulations for that sort of thing online.

I went to college online in NY even though I lived near the college. The prices aren't bad for the schools are usually cheaper for out-of-state students at the SUNY community colleges. That's for the two year degrees.

If you go to a 4 year institution and price is a major factor, I don't recommend going to places like SUNY Albany or any of the CUNY schools. CUNY schools are located in the city and are therefore a bit more expensive.

Go to Online Degree, Online Course and Online Certificate Programs from the SUNY Learning Network and the State University of New York for more information about online degree options at NYS colleges. That's how I found mine.

That really helped. I live less than 20 min. from the border yet I still can't believe how tuition costs escalate so much for out-of-states. Is there any way you can get that waived, even though I doubt it?

The reason it goes up for out-of-state is you are not paying taxes to support the system in the first place. Why should you get a benefit people in state get? Plus, if you do it online, and live where you are, you still won't contribute to the state. So, why should you benefit from instate tuition? Instate is for students who PERMANENTLY move there (at which point you contirbute to the state by paying taxes, purchasing there, etc) Geesshhh.

I believe you can get in state residency if you take at least 6 credit for the fall, spring and summer straight through. I know that this was the case when I was in school in Michigan. It could be something to look into for NY.
