Cuomo’s plan excludes part-time students

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s free tuition proposal would allow families of full-time students making under $125,000 a year to receive free tuition. The $6,470 yearly tuition at a four-year school and the $4,350 yearly tuition at a two-year school would be covered. However, the proposal does not apply to part-time students, such as Katelynn Hackett and Rebecca Shultz from Erie Community College. By Jessica Freda and Meaghan Michel
