Cardinal Nursing Scholarship

If you are an aspiring nursing student, you may be able to cut your tuition costs at SUNY Plattsburgh.

And if you keep your grades up, your discount can last for up to eight semesters of consecutive study. Here’s the deal:

  • Must be a freshman applicant to SUNY Plattsburgh’s Bachelor’s in Nursing program.
  • Must be accepted for admission to SUNY Plattsburgh for fall 2017 or later.
  • EOP applicants are not eligible for the Cardinal Nursing Scholarship.
  • Pay $250 deposit before starting freshman year. The funds are applied to other billed costs.
  • Attend full-time beginning in August 2017, taking 12 or more credits.
  • Live on campus or commute from home.

The Cardinal Nursing Scholarship of $750 per year is deducted from billed costs.

You must maintain a 3.25 cumulative grade point average in each fall or spring semester to which the scholarship applies. Students may receive scholarship for up to eight semesters of consecutive full-time study. One probationary semester is available if student falls below the cumulative GPA. If the student does not satisfy all the standards at the end of this probationary semester or in any future semester, the student becomes permanently ineligible for the award in future semesters.

Students who need to withdraw may maintain eligibility under certain circumstances.
