SUNY and CUNY officials are assisting students with college-related expenses during the prolonged federal shutdown. Payments for tuition and related college expenses will be postponed, and no late fees or penalties will be charged to impacted students. This temporary reprieve will apply to federal employees, dependents of federal employees, and students who are dependent on loans from the federal government that may be delayed. SUNY and CUNY leadership will work with their respective campuses to make financial arrangements for impacted students and their families.
