Introduced  by  Sen. LAVALLE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation  to  establishing  a  new
  category  of tuition for non-resident students of the state university
  enrolled in distance learning courses

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  The opening paragraph of subparagraph 4 of paragraph h of
subdivision 2 of section 355 of the education law, as amended by chapter
260 of the laws of 2011, is amended to read as follows:
  The trustees shall not impose a differential tuition charge based upon
need or income. Except as hereinafter provided, all students enrolled in
programs leading to like degrees at state-operated institutions  of  the
state  university  shall be charged a uniform rate of tuition except for
differential tuition rates based on state residency.  Provided, however,
that the trustees may authorize the presidents of the colleges of  tech-
nology  and  the colleges of agriculture and technology to set differing
rates of tuition for each of  the  colleges  for  students  enrolled  in
degree-granting  programs  leading to an associate degree and non-degree
granting programs so long as such  tuition  rate  does  not  exceed  the
tuition  rate  charged  to  students  who  are  enrolled  in like degree
programs or degree-granting undergraduate programs leading to  a  bacca-
laureate  degree  at  other  state-operated  institutions  of  the state
university of New York. NOTWITHSTANDING  ANY  OTHER  PROVISION  OF  THIS
SUBPARAGRAPH, THE TRUSTEES MAY AUTHORIZE THE SETTING OF A SEPARATE CATE-
GORY  OF  TUITION  RATE, THAT SHALL BE GREATER THAN THE TUITION RATE FOR
RESIDENT STUDENTS AND  LESS  THAN  THE  TUITION  RATE  FOR  NON-RESIDENT
STUDENTS,  ONLY  FOR  STUDENTS ENROLLED IN DISTANCE LEARNING COURSES WHO
ARE NOT RESIDENTS OF THE STATE. Except as otherwise authorized  in  this
subparagraph,  the  trustees  shall  not adopt changes affecting tuition

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
