Financial aid officers across the 64-campus SUNY system last week had complained that they weren’t getting answers to detailed questions about the 2-year-old scholarship program which has drawn a lot of interest from students. “Throughout the year, you help to determine student’s eligibility by verifying credits, calculating award amounts, and certifying payment … [Read more...] about State sets up website, hotline for Excelsior scholarship questions
