NYS Enhanced Tuition Awards

Dominican College is strongly committed to enrolling qualified students, regardless of their financial means. It is for that reason that the College has opted to participate in a new program from New York State, the Enhanced Tuition Award Program (ETA).

Enhanced Tuition Awards of up to $6,000 are available for NYS resident students enrolled in a private college in New York State.  Priority is given to students who were enrolled in 2016-17.  If you would like to speak with someone about attending Dominican College with the NYS Enhanced Tuition Award contact our Financial Aid Office at (845) 848-7821 or financial.aid@dc.edu.
