New York State Enhanced Tuition Award Program

Pace University is committed to making and keeping your education affordable and for that reason the university has elected to participate in the New York State Enhanced Tuition Award Program for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Every year, Pace provides more than $182 million to students in the form of merit scholarships and financial aid, in addition to the State and Federal grants that are available.  The Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA) Program enables New York State resident students to receive additional aid to attend Pace.  Students must apply separately for the ETA.  Students can receive up to $6,000 through a combination of the New York State TAP award, ETA Program award and a match from Pace.

Eligibility and How to Apply:

In order to be eligible, students must be a New York State resident (for a minimum of twelve months prior to applying), have an adjusted family income of $100,000 or less and plan to complete at least 30 credits during the 12 month period beginning September 2017.  In addition, students will be required to live and work in New York State following graduation for as many years that they received an ETA award.

Enhanced Tution Award (ETA) application processing for 2017-2018 is now closed.  Students who have submitted an application are currently being reviewed by New York State Higher Education.  If it is determined that a student is eligible to receive an award for the 2017-2018 academic year, you will be notified via an updated Pace University award letter.
