Who is eligible to receive a HOUSING STIPEND?
Full-time degree-seeking students (SUNY students with a minimum of 9 semester credits / SUNY freshmen Spring 2017 minimum of 12 credits; BBA students with a minimum of 18 semester credits /BBA freshmen Spring 2017 minimum of 24 credit; Master in Psychology students - MPS) who fulfill following conditions:

- Students who are not applying for the stipend in another study program outside of UNYP
Please note that the Ministry of Education is the institution that determines if a particular student is eligible for Housing Stipend. Furthermore, the Ministry only considers students enrolled in their "first study program/field" or transfer students "continuing their studies in the same field" to be eligible. Those are internal terms applied by the Ministry of Education. Whether a student is recognized as "continuing study in the same study field" is also dependent on the code under which his/her previous university reported the leaving student.
*** Please note that Study Abroad and Exchange students are not eligible for the Housing Stipend.
