ESYO strives to keep tuition costs as low as possible.  Whether you pay your tuition all at once, over time, or through tuition assistance, ESYO has a place for you.

COVID-19 has adversely impacted the lives and livelihoods of families across the Capital Region. ESYO is committed to making sure members have access to the benefits of ESYO regardless of their ability to pay. If a member of your household has been laid-off or furloughed due to COVID-19 or is currently experiencing financial difficulties due to the global pandemic, we encourage you to apply for need-based financial aid through the general Financial Aid form.
