October 30, 2017 01:10 PM
Students across New York State can now start applying for free college tuition for the spring semester.
The state began accepting applications on Monday for its new Excelsior Scholarship program.
To qualify, you have to be a full-time student, attend a state university, live in New York State and your family has to earn less than $100,000 a year.
You also have to live in New York for as many years as you receive free tuition. If you move out before that, you'll have to pay it all back.
The application deadline is December 4.
