It’s no secret that the cost of a college education is rising faster and higher than most families can afford. Tuition at SUNYOneonta is a greatvalue when compared to many colleges and universities, but the offer of a scholarship is a key factor inallowing many economically disadvantaged students to experience a SUNY Oneonta education.
